Two things-- this is a work in progress. I haven't settled on any of these points yet and they may well need refining or rethinking. Also, this is very specifically about *first drafts* and how to make them easy to read and critique. Oh, three things. I know it's Boxing Day but this is how I relax.
All great points and love the 'promise' concept. If aiming for a series maybe avoid writing pilot or set up episode first-write mid season episode and discover what needs setting up in the process? Then go back and do pilot draft
