During the past week, I began private coaching with a team rewriting a novel and with a screenwriter who’s rewriting a new screenplay at the request of her agent. In the same week, my private class on rewriting, Finish Your Script began and has nine students, each of whom are each rewriting a screenplay or a novel. Each project is a first, second or third draft, and all tell interesting stories and are well written. They all need work because each story suffers from one or more of the three most common rewriting challenges I find in most of the projects I work on: A passive hero or heroine, an overcomplicated or oversimplified plot, and a lack of suspense.
