Screenwriting : Phillip's metaphor for today :) by Phillip "Le Raconteur" Hardy

Phillip's metaphor for today :)

When it comes to revising scripts, remember that old hides need grease.

Bill Costantini

And if the grease does't work, well....they shoot horses, don't they?

Crystal Wolfer

What does that mean Phillip?

Phillip "Le Raconteur" Hardy

Crystal: What do you think it means?

Crystal Wolfer

To me really right now personally I think it means I shouldn't have kept revising in 'Loglines' where I posted it I regret that

Phillip "Le Raconteur" Hardy

Crystal: That's pretty good.

Crystal Wolfer

Should I post it again or wait until I do the video of me reading it (which is going to be interesting)?

Crystal Wolfer

Did I mess up?

Fiona Faith Ross

Nah, Crystal, don't worry about it. "Nobody knows anything," William Goldman. However much you polish it all up, "they" will change it anyway.

Crystal Wolfer

I shouldn't repost it then?

Phillip "Le Raconteur" Hardy

Crystal: You can't mess up in this thread. It's not a test... or is it?

Fiona Faith Ross

Philip.... Crystal, it's your log line. Provided it meets the rules of this forum (basically that it's not offensive), you should post it if you want to post it.

Phillip "Le Raconteur" Hardy

FFR: I don't post loglines here. Only metaphors. Loglines would leave me subject to ridicule and disdain.

Crystal Wolfer

Okey dokey and thank you for coming to my defence with Phillip

Crystal Wolfer

Phillip I'm still new at to Stage 32 so try not to scare me to bad.... Ok?

Phillip "Le Raconteur" Hardy

Crystal: I'm not here to scare you. I'm a friend to all humanity.

Crystal Wolfer

Don't get me wrong I love metaphors (.I speak that language sometimes) it's just that one metaphor kinda scared me a little once I looked at it deeper

Johnny Pappas

I think you meant, "...try not to scare me too badly.." :D

Crystal Wolfer

Good catch

Johnny Pappas

Thanks for not reacting angrily to my edit though your original post sounds more like spoken English in a screenplay. :)

Crystal Wolfer

I'm glad you caught it

Johnny Pappas

My old hides are constantly getting re-greased.
