No Man's Land
We’ve received feedback from two trusted sources and some changes (substantial deviations from the outline) have been made. Perhaps it’s a blessing at this point that the author is deceased, though she may be turning in her grave at some of the changes we’re making to her “baby”. Most of the changes have been in the “present” part of our story. It’simpossible to reveal the changes without creating spoilers, so I’ll just leave it at that. We still have some scenes that may be entirely reworked.
After that, we’ll each go through the script making a note of any line that needs work by changing its color. We’ll then discuss each questionable line over the phone until one of us is "thrilled" with it. It may seem like a tedious way to go about it, but we think the result wlll be worth it.
So on we slog, through the muddy confusion of rewriting, before the marketing battle begins...
Stay tuned as the word bullets fly!
