HASH(0xa06f7834) étoiles sur 5 Great Way to Learn Screenwriting 31 août 2012
Par C. Conradt - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I wasn't going to write a review on this book because I'm a contributor to it and I figured everyone would assume that I'm just doing shameless self-promotion. But here's why I'm reviewing it. When the editors contacted me and asked if I'd contribute an exercise, they said they were contacting the best, most prolific screenwriters and t.v. writers in the industry (yes, the flattery was nice!) and asking them to contribute one exercise-- the one and only exercise that has helped them more than any other when it comes to writing. That was tough. I had to think long and hard about what technique or trick I've used the most to help me and I ultimately decided that a technique I've used countless times to barrel through writer's block was the one to send in. So I did. It's in the book. If you read it, you'll see it.

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.

HASH(0xa06f7a80) étoiles sur 5 Highly recommended and helpful collection of essays and exercises. 13 janvier 2011
Par Divariffic - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Now Write! Screenwriting is an excellent collection of essays and writing exercises by a wide array of writing professionals compiled by Sherry Ellis and Laurie Lamson. This well-structured book offers very practical solutions to almost any writing crisis that could arise. All of the contributors are working writers who have been in the trenches themselves and therefore, understand the many challenges of writing and the creative process. While this book is geared to the screenwriter, I believe any writer could benefit from the advice given. What I most enjoy is that it's a book that be picked up and randomly opened for pearls of wisdom and encouragement without having to be committed to a long read or one point of view. It's there for when you need a small boost or to just get the juices flowing.

HASH(0xa06f7cc0) étoiles sur 5 Excellent book for the Screenwriter 27 avril 2011
Par andrea - Publié sur
Format: Broché
As I began to write my first screenplay, I searched to find books that would support this mighty feat.
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.
