INT. MEETING HALL-NIGHT

Aspiring screenwriters meetup.

Pete
What are we going to do?

Eddie
We're going to discuss story ideas, plot lines, character development and the usual problems.

Mable
Like what?

Eddie
"Am I saying too much? "Is the scene clear?" "Is this too much dialogue?" "Should I use a series of shots, or a montage?" "Is this scene necessary?" "Is this formatted properly?" You get the idea.

Irene
So what do you want to do?

Eddie
Create scenes and work through these types of problems. Or work on scenes someone is having with. Perhaps act it out to see how a director and actors might interpret it.

Rudy
What's your story?

Eddie
When I decided to write a screenplay, I was hesitant to tell anyone what I was doing. I didn't want to sound silly; after all, I really didn't know what the heck I was doing (still don't). It was difficult and I needed help, but I had no one to turn to. I almost quit, but I enjoyed the challenge and stuck with it.

Julio
Are you going teach us?

Eddie
Heck no. We're going to figure it out TOGETHER. It should be fun.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
