Inbreeding

I've updated the blogroll to reflect some new screenwriting blogs -- I think we are all feeding off each other now.

Next step: how do we draw others into our little web, hmm? How shall we pull the unsuspecting into discussions of 3-act vs. 4-act vs. sequences structure or FD vs. MMS or brads vs. brass fasteners (see Artful Writer Forum FAQ for final word on that I guess)...

Who will we be able to taunt with calls for 'Concept vs. Execution' -- We can't keep going 'round in circles on this one between the 30 or 40 or so of us...

So, I propose a project for the week. Invite one friend to visit any of the screenwriting blogs (and you know what they are). Pick any blog. Pick any friend. Only rule is, they cannot have visited a Screenwriting Blog in the past.

I'd challenge you to 5 friends, but I know I can't pull that off myself. I can count on one hand minus a finger the number of friends I have. Subtract 2 more fingers for friends who haven't read a screenwriting blog...

We must refill the gene pool!

Oh come on now. I know you must have more friends than that!

Not a bad idea, the inviting thing. What I'm thinking is that we should also try to organize a little screenwriting blogger get together. I know Quill is out, but MOST of us live in the L.A. vicinity. And maybe we can even get the "upper tier" to join us as well. If they're not too busy getting paid to actually write films!

This is the first I'm posting about it, but what do you think? I can plan, and spread the word.

You guys make me want to move out there JUST so I can hang out with youse all (sorry, the Okie accent is rubbing off on me here)
So I will recommend one to Shawna, is that how this works? How about Screenwriter Bones http://www.screenwriterbones.blogspot.com/

I'd rather argue abot Brads. He was an ass who was into shamanism and the West Wing. Dillweed pissed me off most of the time.
