Why They Speed Date Then Toss Your Screenwriting Masterpiece

Many scripts fail within the first half of the first page or less. Others dig themselves a grave within the first ten pages. Either scenario causes the first level reader to lose interest and either drop it in the reject pile or skim through the rest of it. Both options spell disaster for your spec script and in many cases any further writing efforts on the writer’s part.
