Stephen Graham 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.

I think not. For example, if you live distant from L.A., take the entry fee money and get yourself an 800 number. That, in my opinion, is much more helpful to your career. Or purchase the online Hollywood Creative Directory for a year, which is updated weekly and is hands down the most up-to-date marketing resource you have short of reading the daily trades (which serious career-minded screenwriters also will do).

Also ask yourself this: since contests always cost money, is this the best way to invest money in your future?

If the contest is not mentioned here, get all the information you can about it. In particular, pay attention to who the readers are and if they have significant industry positions or connections. Remember that the quickest way any new organization can gain credibility is to give an award! Beware of contest sharks.

First the warning: beware of “fly by night” contests. A few people have figured out that there are thousands of “wannabe screenwriters” out there who will do almost anything to break into the business, including paying fat entry fees for contests. Do your homework before entering any screenplay contest. If you are online, one of the best resources for getting the latest information about contests is at: http://www.moviebytes.com.

Here’s a short fight scene from The Fight Club by Jim Uhls:

Notice that there is not a single dependent clause in this writing; it is all simple and compound sentences.

“ Wessex grapples with him, and now it becomes a parody of the Hamlet duel. Wessex’s unbuttoned sword falls to the ground. Will puts his foot on it, tosses Wessex his own safe sword, picks up Wessex’s sword and continues to fight until he has Wessex at his mercy.”

“ Wessex slashes at Will. Will knows how to fight. He parries and thrusts. Wessex is surprised. The fight goes fast and furious around the stage, until Will thrusts accurately at Wessex’s chest … and would have killed him but for the button on his sword-point.
