Getting feedback from a screenplay consultant or reader can be humbling, and confusing. Maybe even a little demoralizing.
Knowing what to do with screenplay feedback can be crippling.
Partly because it’s just words on a page. Just like an email or a text message, written feedback doesn’t provide an opportunity to discuss and clarify, so if the screenplay consultant misunderstood something, or isn’t clear in their recommendations, you’ve got no recourse. You’re left to interpret (or misinterpret) to the best of your meager ability… or simply discard what could be valuable feedback.
