Craig and John take a look at Toph Eggers's apology, which segues to a discussion of apologies in general and laugh tracks.

The bulk of the episode is spent on listener questions:

  • After making a spec sale, what should a writing team do next?
  • When handing in a rewrite, should you preface your changes in an email?
  • How do you handle file-keeping with multiple projects and drafts?
  • What is a "spec script auction?"
  • What do you do when your manager keeps pushing you to write things you're not interested in?
  • How do you format verse (like Shakespeare) when it's used as dialogue?
  • What do you do when your scene has 23 characters in it?

All this and more in this week's Scriptnotes.
