Reading Myself The Riot Act
I am bound & determined to finish reading Robert McKee's book about writing a screenplay, STORY. Today I've sat in the park reading. I've sat behind my apartment building. And I'm gonna read in bed later. I AM going to finish that darn thing so I can get on with actually writing the screenplay! By the time I finish reading the book I hope & pray I have a definitive story I want to tell. 'Cause, as it stands, I'm not really sure WHAT I'm going to write. I mean, I know the story's setting and several of its characters. But I don't know what I'm going to say about the characters. See, where I am right now in the process is what most writers refer to as writer's block. When, in reality, writer's block is simply a kind way of saying that the writer has NOTHING to say at the moment!!!!!
