I like helping people. At least I like helping those who want help. Not everyone does especially the people who need it most. That’s probably why I got into the networking game.
I recently have been feeling out film groups on Facebook, wanting to see if there would be any interest for a weekly gathering for screenwriters. Honestly I didn’t expect much of a response seeing as there wasn’t a place booked yet and there wasn’t an actual plan in place. But, in the first group I posted, I got responses almost right away from about 20 or so people. Cool. Nice start. Most were enthusiastic about the possibilities of a weekly group for writers to work out issues, talk about process, and have their works read aloud in a writers room.
