Can you sell what you have without telling how good it is (blowing trumpet stuff)? Imagine you're in a market where everyone's selling the same brand of goods you're selling, every buyer wants to buy the best of that brand you are selling and most obviously you might notice a "stiff market" situation if you're keen. You have your goods and you know it's good or better than some other traders' but your approach to sell is different. You prefer someone or other people to blow your own trumpet and my question is, when can this ever happen in the screenwriting market? I have the feeling it's a "stiff market" and some screenwriters prefer to sell their goods by staying quiet.... If you've watched Jack The Giant Slayer, you'll see the first scenes where he wants to sell his horse... He spoke out and he sold it for some grains of bean :). However, if he didn't speak (blow his trumpet), the monk might have sought some other means and his market situation wasn't stiff. There were different brands to choose from. Just to throw more light. What's your thought?
