This is what writing and DSW is about - our first draft, even if it's a great draft, will not be the final draft of the story. Even after a script is taken for production, changes can take place for all manner of reasons in the process of bringing it to it's audience. But ultimately, it's in the control of the writer to make those changes work for their story; which is what Emma has done after her previous crit session.
Being ready to address those changes that need to be made is part of making a story work, especially in a collaborative medium like film. I'm looking forward to reading the rest of Emma's the screenplay - as soon as I can get to a printer...
If you'd like to join us, we'll be at the Standing Order pub in Derby from 7.30 - drop us an email to let us know you're coming along, and we'll save you a seat.
