A blog about writing and all things story…
Recently I had the opportunity to sit down with another of my writing mentors, Bill Johnson, author of Story Is A Promise, Good Things To Know Before You Write That Screenplay or Novel or Play – AND, A Story Is A Promise, The Spirit Of Storytelling where Bill offers new tools for creating vibrant story characters, outlining a novel, and a guide to writing a novel, screenplay, or play, and how to evaluate a manuscript, review a screenplay, and tools to revise a novel. Bill also writes an educational blog at www.storyispromise.com where he does autopsies on essays and popular stories to help you understand how they were constructed and skillfully uses them to teach craft, whether you’re writing a novel, movie script, or play, these explorations into popular stories that have done well, is worth your time.
So sit back and listen to Bill talk about understanding what your story is about (the promise/premise) and how to transport your readers (movement), and of course, why some writers end up dressing like Klingons.
