I’m rewriting “the Beautymaker” at the moment and to my tremendous joy I feel the script is good. Most times I feel disappointed when I return to a script to rewrite the first draft, but this time was not one of those.
Soon I am at the disaster for an ending though.
I know what to do with it. At least I think so. The problem before was that all the troubles were solved too soon and the stakes were not high enough.
I’ve added a financial aspect to the main character’s situation; and since I feel that love is more important than money, he will solve his financial situation first, and get his girlfriend back afterwards (and not because his is rich).
It is also a matter of story. It felt like the story ended when they reunited, but the bag was untied, still open. I have to close all cases, except for their relationship, first, and then he has proven his worthy and won her back.
