I didn’t need to see the remake of Total Recall to know it was bad. All I had to do was look at the cast. Colin Farrell and Jessica Biel were on nobody’s A-List in 2012. The producers probably wanted Brad and Angelina, until they read the script and passed on it.

Today seems to be new blog day. I've never seen this one before yet the guy has tons of what look like helpful blog entries.
The key is this – you have to really respect your partner’s opinion. One main reason writers team up is because they want that feedback. Especially for sitcoms. It can be tough writing comedy in a vacuum. You’ll feel a lot more secure if someone you trust also thinks a joke or bit is funny. But if you think your partner is a great guy, and can introduce you to some hot girls but thinks Pauley Shore is the funniest comedian in the last hundred years – find someone else.
“I sent a query letter to some producers but they told me they don’t read unsolicited material and to find an agent and have the agent submit the screenplay. So I approached some agents and they either won’t read my screenplay or they say that they only represent writers with credits. How can I start my career? It sounds like a catch-22.”
What kinds of films will be watching in the next ten years? What kinds of films will our children be watching in the next twenty to thirty years?

Commas have an essential function in creative writing. They indicate to the reader which words should go together in a sentence and which parts of the sentence are the most important. But this little punctuation mark often causes big problems for writers. When do you use a comma? Where does the comma go in a sentence? When do you leave out the comma? What are the rules for comma use?
Michael Cornetto's insight:
I must admit, I don't follow at least one of these rules. I'm not certain I agree 100% with all of them either. Are we allowed not to agree with punctuation rules? What, do you, think?
