Plan B: Stripping

The question often arises, “Jimmy, what do you really think is going to happen with this whole asking famous people for money thing?

Easy. Famous people will give me money. Next question.

Okay, so maybe that’s not going to happen, still it’s not totally out of the realm of possibility, right? After all, we live in a “realm of possibility” where there are people who actually give money to Spencer Pratt to, uh, speak and breathe (often at the same time, which is no small feat for him). I mean come on people, Spencer Pratt. It’s right there in his name. I’ve got to have more value than that guy.

Okay, so let’s say no one cuts me a check, what else is there? Well, there is exposure. There is publicity. There is the hope that more people will read my scripts and tell me how great my writing is (but then not give the standard “it’s not what we’re looking for at this time” part of the speech that I’ve heard far too often.)

Sure, there are proven ways to go from being an unproduced screenwriter to standing at the Oscar podium accepting an award for your first script that are more acceptable. I could start stripping tomorrow and put my musings in a blog and just start writing my acceptance speech, but I figure I’ll give this a shot first.

Maybe I should start waxing though, just in case…
