I call them…. Try to make it organic and motivated to the situation. The audience has no frame of visual reference or mental picture. Such as two people talking without visual accompaniment. Keep it to a minimum. Avoid delivery of exposition that slows down the story to an unacceptable degree. Not ALL the exposition needs to occur at once. Only include what occurs naturally. Only what needs to be provided at the particular moment. Only include exposition that can be seen or heard on screen. What are the most creative actions your characters could take to overcome these obstacles and achieve their goals given these chosen elements?

These clients have put in the blood, sweat, and tears it takes to succeed in writing full proof scripts that slice through the competition.

Road Blocks was about couples coupling up, family, decisions, and politics. As I mentioned in my status updates, this seemed like a text version of a porn film.
Loose scenes linking together graphic depictions of a sexual nature. So, what else happened beyond Addy and Emma humping each other non-stop. Should I actually get married! Will she still want me after I actually marry her! My boss, Dick. As in, there was more smirking going on in that one scene than there was fucking in the other scene.
Right, sorry, distracted myself.
See a Problem?
With the kids away, Emma and Addy fuck. A lot. Almost non-stop but for the times they stopped — because, you know, work. Oh, and Tamara and Chris continue in their really long engagement until they stop due to wedding. Oh, and they also fuck, just to add spice to events and stuff. Despite my mumblings in the status updates, and my.

Jan 22, Joc rated it liked it Shelves: celebrity , explicit-content , lesbian , romance , writer-journalist , established-couple. I think this series is over for me. Emma and Addison have been together for seven years, they're married, they have two children, their careers are fine, their friends are fine and their families are fine.
Unless one of them dies or cheats there is not much left to say and if either of those things happen I probably won't want to read it anyway. Aug 05, Tony Hisgett rated it it was ok Shelves: lesbian. Apart from the almost continuous sex very little else happened. Jun 01, Susan rated it it was amazing.
