#Scriptchat USA OPEN TOPIC

Tonight, being the day after Christmas, EURO took a holiday, and USA had an open topic.  During the normal EURO time slot, co-founder Jeanne Veillette Bowerman was a guest on Film Courage radio show, talking facing fears and the amazing community of screenwriters on Scripthcat.  During the USA chat, we talked everything from Westerns to remakes gone wrong.  When it’s OPEN TOPIC night, you never know what tangent we might go off on.  Read and enjoy!

1:56 am             Todfilm:             @milesmaker No. It's just that people make films that they think are original because they don't realize it's been done before. #scriptchat
1:56 am             PrologueWriting:             #scriptchat i wanted to rent the original tron from bbuster, AND THEY DIDNT CARRY IT. i was like, wtf bbuster??? bbuy didnt have it also!

1:58 am             KonradStief:             Back. Brother phoned me. #scriptchat
