Trying to sell a screenplay in LA is probably one of the more difficult endeavors one can pursue. Yet, every year, millions of people watch a movie and think to themselves, "I can write a movie better than that..." And, of those millions, thousands actually attempt it - even less complete it. And, of those thousands, maybe a handful actually make it. But, 99.999999999999999% of them will never make it in that first year. Or the second. Or the third. My friend, Sara, sold a movie script, has an Emmy, came from within "the industry" and still has not had a smooth ride. I don't know if I was naive to think I could actually "make it" when I chose to move to LA for several months last year, but I'll tell you one thing: it was one of the best experiences of my life.
