If I hear this phrase one more time on the blogosphere I'm going to vomit. Might just be me. What does it mean? Power indicates some kind of.....well.... empowerment. Three people read your script and give notes? But they are the same incestuous bunch attending the same seminars, reading the same books and latching on to the same ''this is how you do it' bagatelle. Nett result - a bunch of lifeless, cloned scripts. I don't mean that in a bad way. Every writer craves recognition and support deep down. But support coupled with good advice is a hard thing to come by. Work at it. It takes time and experience.
As Paul Schrader said. Fuck upwards. Peer revue is not worth that much if you are on the bottom rung. Find one person who actually knows what they are talking about and is willing to give you the time of day. That is worth The Power of 3 cubed. I mean that seriously.
Okay I'm not gaining friends and influencing people by saying this. But that's not why I blog.
