Being creative on many levels, I have a good eye for what works and what will be successful. I consider myself an artist first, screenwriting is painting with words, editing is painting with pictures and publishing is painting with graphics
As an editor I will tear your work to shreds. Not because the story is bad, but because you aren't telling it well. Foremost, if you expect investors to spend MILLIONS of tiny little dollars on something you made up and then wrote down, it darn well be ENTERTAINING. Doesn't matter if you're Aaron Sorkin or Ned Nobody. So when your "I've got a great story" script reads like a macro economics textbook, don't be surprised.
A good story that reads well get's noticed. A great story that reads well get's made. Period. Great stories find a way. -- Hey, I said that, you can quote me. CP
