Oh boy. If I had a dime… Here’s a recent posting on Craigslist by a person who seems to think that their ideas are worth something. Wait. Not that they aren’t, they’re just not worth cash money, is all. As the old Hollywood saw goes, “Ideas are a easy, execution is hard.” But I’m sure there are just as many green and eager producers whose shoes just slid off the bus who will pony up for this never-been-seen-before brilliance. I’ve posted full links because who am I to stand in the way of another person’s self-inflated, misguided dream?

I am an unknown writer from Texas that has developed several plots that are very well thought out and planned. One is character driven and offers an experienced person the chance to really build from where I have developed the story. The other is an amazing plot for life in the big city and also how small it can be at the same time. I have three stories developed but I just do not feel prolific enough to get them done right.
So here it goes. I am offering them up for sale. If it is meant for me to become a writer then it will happen with some other story down the road. Two of these stories are adaptable to screen or television for serial story telling.
Yeah, I am green and don’t know the business but I know that if I sign on the dotted line someone is getting some great ideas without my name attached and you get complete ownership and creativity credit…I was never attached to it.
Take a chance…I really have something here.
