Cinema Spec: tip # 1

I've read eight submissions so far (out of 24 received in the first two days) for Cinema Spec: Tales of Hollywood and Fantasy, and I already have a tip for prospective submitters. Movies, television, Hollywood, holograms, etc.--whatever moving-picture-related theme you choose--should be an integral part of the story or poem. If I'm on page 4 of the story, and I still have no idea where the movie angle is, that won't be a successful piece for this anthology. The moving-picture theme should be clear from the outset (or pretty close).

Thanks. Keep the subs coming.
