    Show me a writer that is satisfied with a script and i will show you an amateur.  You can not be satisfied 100%  with a story as the writer. You have to tweak, correct, chip in some other things that escaped your mind.

    You have to look for a good ending for the script just because it have to stop. You cannot just be finished with a script.

    Read what Aaron Tharpe (of Film Lab Creative) One of the best writer in the world have to say:

    “I don’t know if I’ve ever actually come to a place where a story I was working on would be considered 100% finished in my mind. If time and budget allotted, I would just tweak and tweak and tweak for all of eternity. You can ask Joey, or anyone else [at Film Lab Creative] for that matter. When a project is “complete”, and everyone is smiling as we go to click “upload”, I’ll be the guy that yells, “Wait!”, because there’s some minor idea or change that came to my mind as I mulled it over for the 1,000th time.”

    You can be okay with it, thats fine and normal. But to be fully satisfied, you can’t be.

    Even there are some things you would wish to add after the movie is already out. Creativity is infinite.

    Let me drop this for you.

    “When you reach an obstacle, turn it into an opportunity. You have the choice. You can overcome and be a winner, or you can allow it to overcome you and be a loser. The choice is yours and yours alone. Refuse to throw in the towel. Go that extra mile that failures refuse to travel. It is far better to be exhausted from success than to be rested from failure.” — Mary Kay Ash.

    Always remember that quote. Waiting for you to hit the screen. I believe in you
