one little scene

I'm happy as I near the end of my feature script. Then one simple scene doesn't work. I begin to rewrite with no end in sight. I was so close and now I'm so far away.

No way are you so far from the end, with only one little scene to rewrite. Your creative skills are moving on in leaps and bounds. When we going to hear about the storyline?

It will be two to five years before I reveal much about the story line.

While I've never had a concept stolen for a feature, I have had a concept used without payment that my youngest son Micheal (A time traveling Elvis)be made into a movie.

I've had one short movie concept stolen from me and many Museum Exhibit designs.

I've signed a agreement not to reveal storyline concepts. I will tell you that the story is about love and imagination and the limits of abuse good people can endure.

I know you have been robbed of concepts and scripts, but I do believe you need feedback to get the scene to work. Perhaps if you tell somebody that don't write or direct about your problem, where the scene start and where you want it to end, perhaps you can get fresh ideas and new point of views.

To Joan and Desiree

I've don't have your email addresses
(long story how I lost them)
If you want to email me I'll explain the project in more detail in a reply.

I am past my "one little scene" and do have people to bounce ideas off of.
