IMAGINE this: a screenwriter has their script rejected on the grounds that it is confusing and unworkable. However, instead of responding to this rejection by rewriting the script from scratch, the author issues a set of instructions about to properly read the original screenplay; whole passages are to be carved out, new scenes inserted, characters changed, and acts restructured. Rather than a new, clean manuscript, the reader is left with a copy of the rejected script and the amending one and the confusing job of patching it together.
