: : : Rob, forget the screenplay! If one door is closed to you, push on another. Have you considered pulling that story out of the box, reformatting it, and submitting it for publication? You've got a hell of an interesting title (Borgo Pass) and you've already had it copyrighted. I, for one, would be interested in reading it. -CP
: Thanks for the support CP. I have vaguely considered turning it into a novel. It wouldn't be too hard to do, since it's not in strict screenplay form, but reads more like a story treatment (84 pages long. Yikes!) I would have to add the dialogue I only described so that would flesh it out more....You know what? I think I'll do it!
: By the way, have you guessed what the title has to do with the adventure?
I don't have the foggiest idea. Which is why I love the title! It caught my interest, unlike the somewhat predictable titles you see like "Indiana Jones and the Silver Sphincter" or some such variation. No, your title definitely caught my interest. And don't worry about the number of pages. You've got a great start, actually, better than a start because you've got an entire story treatment. That's probably the hardest part. Getting an entire story line down on paper, one that takes the protaganist through some sort of life or character-affirming trial, has to be the hardest part. You're on your way. Now's the fun part - dialogue. To put it another way, you've got the car built, now go paint and detail it. -CP
