Talbot Trauma

November 12, 2008

Big week. Nell Denton has read a draft of THE SCRIPT. Her notes were great. She didn’t love it, but the suggestions are sound, will add some great touches and bring up the grade (one hopes).

There were elements she was uneasy about – the sex scene perhaps top of that list. I agree that it needs to be reworked, maybe even binned. It’s a turning point, and in the protagonist’s arc it is important, but I’m not making an Animal House for the Noughties. It’s a question of maintaining a consistent tone

Anyway she was cool in our meeting, and it was all a pleasant relief, which was followed by a celebratory cappuccino.
