Re: I am writing a screenplay, opinions, ideas, and trollings welcome



Thanks for the opinions, everyone.

I have another idea about a medievel Europe court jester who rises to the top, becomes a king, and reigns over a kingdom. From jester to king. He was born in an orphanage and bounced back and forth from orphanage to foster family. In the orphanages, they practiced entertaining each other and especially the rich, infertile couples that usually came in there looking to adopt. Those who entertained the best normally got out of the orphanage. But our hero, our court jester, let's call him Viktor, is exceptionally talented. Too bad he boozes away most of his court jesting talent. But one day he meets an elder jester who gets his act together, and Viktor eventually meets a nice girl, the daughter of a prince, he is barred by the family, there is war with Viktor's old jester coach's people and the people of the king whose grandaughter Viktor is in love with, so a little Romeo and Juliet in there too.

The ending, well I can't give it away!

"Stream of conscienceness???" At least spell it right, for cryin' out loud!

Its stream of consciousness, and its not ideas being thrown around. If that were the case, anyone would be a Wolff or a Faulkner.

The way you are going about your career, I'm almost certain you'll end up as a pizza delivery boy. All I can say is 'welcome to the club!'

“When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men in a society, over the course of time they create for themselves a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it.”

Don't quit your day job

I stand corrected

One's lack of ability to punctuate does not make one's grammatically flawed ramblings "stream of consciousness".

On another note, I gotta point out - it's Woolf.
