    So, this weekend while I was deep into a bottle of jack, I got this wierd idea in my head about writing a movie script based on a dream i had the night before.....anyways the whole synopsis of the plot is this.....A married man who has been with his wife for about 10 years, has an ongoing affair with another woman, this affair has been going on roughly 5 years, and after this time, (the woman he has been having an affair with, who is also married), the man decides to call it quits, well her husband finds out about this affair gets pissed, and confronts the other man about it.....i dont want to give away the ending, but at the end of the movie this man finally realizes after these 5 years that the fun he was having with this woman wasnt worth it in the long run....

    I dont know what direction i want to go with....i can go with the whole flashback type of movie where we open with a funeral and have the main character use flashback to get up the end and find out whose funeral it is and through this we know right away somebody dies, we just dont know who it is who died.....this will keep the audience intrested......

    The other way to go is almost like regular days...where the audience doesnt know whats going to happen but could get bored with the whole damn thing.....this is my problem per se.....in need of some criticism hah alol

    i really like the funeral start idea making sure it doesnt give away anything too much though mybe not even the sex then u can decide which one it is when u want.....

    the only problem with this writing (not yours i mean writing in general) is it gets difficult in the middle to keep people interested cos u know u wanna start well and u know u want a cool ending but people sometimes forget about the middle.

    this couple is married for 10 years.....they have a son who is around 8 or 9, and on the surface everything looks good...but what the husband is hiding is that he has been having this affair for a good amount of time he was married....at first you know he's having a good time but as this affair drags on he realizes that its taking a huge toll on his life, the running around, keeping things secret and its eating him up inside....the woman that he is having the affair with is also married and she wants to leave her husband and for him to leave his family.....the man decides that he can't do this bc he loves his family too much...the woman gets mad and tells her husband who gets very angry and confronts our main character and this is where the drama ensues..and at the end, the audience will find out who is in the coffin....

    if i can be honest.....it sounds like a movie my mom has watched on Lifetime before....but if you can throw a crazy twist in the middle of it, to switch it up a little bit....then i say go for it

    I say go for it.

    And if you want to interview someone that has been through something like that for research...I'm here. Your little description so far (minus the coffin) is something I have had to unfortunately live out. 10 years of marriage, 2 daughters, oldest was 6, youngest 2....actually got divorced, got back together, remarried...and here we are...12 years together now...
    people always told me that I needed to write a book about my life.


    Good luck...
