John and Craig discuss when to stop rewriting a project and accept that it's just not going to become a movie. Then we go bigger to look at when to give up on the dream of being a screenwriter -- which starts with a hard look at why people seek out the career in the first place.

Also in this episode, we talk reviews and the virtues of not reading them, plus a look at Zach Braff's Kickstarter situation.
