Fast forward to publication and me as I receive a couple free copies. Having been a t.v. writer for as long as I have been, I didn't think I'd learn anything new from this book. I figured there'd be some good stuff, but I never in a million years thought it would help me. I was 100% wrong. As I flipped through the book, I found myself so engrossed with some of the ideas and exercises from other writers that I've now included them in my arsenal of writing tools. I've been writing for t.v. for more than 10 years and have had more than 40 movies produced, and this book STILL made me a better writer than I was before I opened it.
I've bought a ton of copies and given them as gifts to people that I've mentored or friends that have dabbled in screenwriting. They've all raved about it. What you're buying is a collection of the very best tips from successful, working writers with an exercise that goes with each concept. If you did one exercise a day, you'd be 100 times better at writing than you are right now. And if you just flipped through the book and found a few exercises that made a difference for you-- that helped you fill your own personal writing deficiencies-- then, again, you've just made great progress. The concept is brilliant and it works because it's a collection of the best ideas from the best writers. BTW, I wasn't paid to contribute to the book and I don't make any money on it so there's no financial benefit in promoting it. I really just believe in the book and am proud to have been a part of it.
I was happy to come across Now Write! as it supported my questions moving forward.
The exercises were very helpful and provided me with thoughtful answers.
Digging deep into this process is a lonely endeavor, but when you have a book like this - you don't feel so alone.
I highly recommend purchasing this book, opening it up and diving in.
