Writer Tip #5: Manage Your Expectations

Don't expect a producer who drives a Ford Taurus to pay you enough money for your script to buy a Jaguar.  Trust me, you're never going to walk away from a project making more money than him.  Even if your project is a runaway hit, the most you can hope for is that he'll drive you to the car dealer to pick up your new Ford Taurus in his brand new Jaguar.

No need to elaborate any further on this tip.  It's a pretty simple concept.

Expect that, and you won't be disappointed.

That said, if you know your producer's address, you may want to check out his place on Google maps before agree on a price for your script.  If it's a really nice place in a really nice neighborhood, you may want to up your price!
