  2. Great advice. I had to think about plotholes carefully while writing my first screenplay–but I waited to do that during the rewrites. As Bates points out, this is something you do when you go back through looking for all the places where you can improve your manuscript. There’s no way I could have seen my plotholes during the first pell-mell draft.

    It’s been a while since I looked with fresh eyes at my script. A friend has offered to show it to some producer friends of his. (Gulp! Yay!) I’m going to use these bullet points from Joseph Bates to make another run-through, on the lookout for whoopsies.

    Thanks for the excerpt, George!
