  1. More good screenwriting tips here. Making a scene opening snappier and more interesting is quite important.

  2. Great post! I still haven’t read On Writing but it has been on my reading list for ages! I love the Artists way too. In adtodiin to these, I really recommend Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott and Writing Down the Bones by Natalie Goldberg. Good writing!
