I already love this thread! I have heard you use the term 'writing for the trashcan' numerous times and I knew exactly what it meant. I may never thought of it in that way with regards to "re-writing" movies or TV shows before on a personal level, but the end result was always the same for me. I love to write. When I'm not on here posting, I'm writing because I enjoy the process more than anything. When it comes to taking characters from movies and doing my own take on them, it has never been with the idea that I could write better than what was on the screen. It's always been about figuring out what kind of story I want to tell and then seeing it through to the end, good and bad. It's the process for me that I thrive on and taking characters or plots or whatever from whichever medium helps keep me writing and more importantly curtailing the dreaded writers block we all run into. Usually while I'm working on known characters from films and TV, I'm also working through my own original stories and it does help me with make big breakthroughs by shifting my focus elsewhere so I'm not obsessing on "what to do here and what to do there", if that makes sense. Really glad you started this thread Neumatic:) I look forward to contributing to it as much as possible.
