My characters in the Beautymaker don’t act. They just talk. Except for the villain, she is okay; I think.
I have nice and sometimes stunning dialog, but it’s just talk. I have pages that could be placed anywhere; I don’t use the environment; they don’t act, just talk.
It’s a disappointing realization.
But, the story is good, and that is most important. With a good story I’ve got the best spine I could get to build the rest of the script on.
When I’ve finished this first draft, the script will rest for about a month. Then I bet I have new splendid ideas about what to do.
