Roberto, come back and judge my work when you have a few hundred members on your Profile Page. Otherwise stick to your own writing. I've got a few folks in Hollywood interested. I really hope you haven't screwed up my chances. You may want to Google the Gunn-Keith Feud in Scotland. It'll give you some insight into how I respond to disrespect.

William Gunn

All kidding aside, what exactly didn't you like about the screenplay? I'm really curious. wgunn1953@hotmail.com

Hi William. Please don't take any criticism personally. The point of the story is not clear to me. Can you please explain to me what the point of the story is and why I should want to see it? Thanks.

William Gunn

Roberto, the point of any story is to entertain, obviously. However, in the case of this story I've tried to both entertain and reassure the readers that I believe that Humanity does indeed have a future, We're not going to exterminate ourselves in the next 20 years or so. But it doesn't mean everything in the Future will be Perfect. Far from it! There will always be Villains. Just look at the Current Occupant of The White House for Example. But there will also always be the so-called Heroes. Those who don't necessarily know it and definitely don't wear capes. It's up to those Heroes to keep the World in Balance. Mars General is a story about such a man, Jack Greyson who travels to Mars in order to learn who killed his friend. That he must go there in the role of Chief of Staff is really secondary. He wants Justice. The fact that he encounters allies along the way only help him in his Quest. That Jack meets the Love of His Life is a Bonus! That she ends up actually saving his life is somewhat unexpected.
