Script Feedback Part 2: The Danger Of Other People’s Ideas

Script Feedback Part 2: The Danger Of Other People’s Ideas

By Jacob Krueger

As I discussed in the previous post, it’s easy for most writers to identify a obviously terrible note.  The real danger occurs with the ones that often seem to be the most intelligent.

The Danger of Other People’s Ideas

If you’ve ever been part of a certain kind of writing group, you know what I’m talking about: the feeling of being blown back and forth from one brilliant idea to another, until you have no idea what you’re actually writing anymore.

For all the conscious thought writers put into their screenplays, writing is an organic, intuitive process.  And when we lose that instinctual connection to what we are writing, our scripts tend to fall apart, no matter how brilliant the ideas we are serving.

And yet we NEED help.

We need feedback.  We need classes.  And we need teachers. So what the heck are we supposed to do?

Continue on to the next post, in which I’ll be introducing a new approach to feedback that can change your whole experience as a writer.
