Steve McQueen Tobit Writer

PREMISE: Tobit is an observant Dutch Jew living in Amsterdam. He lives correctly, giving alms and burying the dead. In spite of his good works, Tobit is struck blind. Concurrent with Tobit’s story is that of Sarah, daughter of one of Tobit’s distant relative, whose seven successive husbands are each killed by a demon on their wedding night. When Tobit and Sarah pray to God for deliverance, God sends the angel Raphael to act as intercessor. Tobit regains his sight, and Sarah marries Tobit’s son Tobias. The story closes with Tobit’s thanksgiving and an account of his death. This is actually a Jewish short story possibly dating from Persian times in some Bibles is the book of Tobit, named after the father of its hero.

When Are You Ready to Market?

But you need to put together your own plan according to your needs, based on as many divergent opinions and recommendations as you can find.

Use your resources wisely. An 800 number is a great thing for non-L.A. screenwriters to have—it encourages people to call you because it’s at your expense. If I were you and money were tight, I’d get my own 800 number before I thought of entering any contests. And if I could still afford investing in my career, I’d then enter Nicholl and Austin annually. And if still, Columbus now and again.

Because there are other ways to open doors, as you’ll see. Yes, the Nicholl and Austin are great gold stars to have on your resume if you win or place high in them. And probably winning any contest might open a door or two. (Locally, the Willamette Writers had a screenplay contest—there were 11 entries! Well, someone can write agents, “I won the Willamette Writers Screenplay Contest!” And maybe the agent will laugh and maybe not).

“Thomas picks up the last item in line, the chair, walks it to the front and sets it down.

“He has all three items set in a line: the radio in front, then the end table, and the chair at the rear.

“ As he walks toward the game, Thomas is transporting, in an assembly line fashion, a plastic chair, a small end table, and a portable radio.

Here is an example from Smoke Signals by Sherman Alexie:
