My Life as a Screenwriter You've Never Heard Of (Guest Column)

My Life as a Screenwriter You've Never Heard Of (Guest Column) | Visual Storytelling | Scoop.it
Justin Marks has written over 20 movie screenplays and seen his TV pilots greenlit — but as he explains, the life of a Hollywood scribe is far more lows than highs if your name isn't Aaron Sorkin.
Cyd Madsen's insight:

A glimpse of the reality behind the dreams.  Very few ever get to the height of being Aaron Sorkin, living the dream and the glitz.  Best to have your dreams in order and have your priorities straight, know what matters and how happy you can be with how much disappointment.  Personally, I don't see much difference between this kind of disappointment than what we'd find in the corporate world, same killer work that's thrown away, but we don't glamorouize that type of rise.  We accept it.  Acceptance is a beautiful thing.
