    A book exploring how to be a screenwriter... for a change

    If you want to learn how to write a script, you have plenty of books to choose from Field, McKee, Hauge, Seger, Hunter etc. Last time I checked, a search on screenwriting-related books yielded over 680 resuts! You gotta be kidding me! Anyone who's read even one book must know the rules by now, but how many know how to BE a screenwriter, especially a professional with the necessary skills to be a success in Hollywood? Check out this new book. It is literally about living the screenwriter's life, in the words of the top scribes in the biz. They share their habits, explore their writing environments and creative processes, and give us a glimpse of their daily passions and obsessions. It covers everything aspiring writers always wanted to know about what it's really like to be a screenwriter but never had the chance to ask a successful one... until now. A valuable addition to any writer's library of must-have books. Oh, and I almost forgot! There's a cool foreword by UCLA Professor Lew Hunter himself. Check it out... and 'Write on! as he's so fond of saying.
