Lots of Ideas (but too many typos)
Martell is a seasoned screenwriter (mostly cable action/thrillers), and while his tricks for finding useful script ideas aren't exactly groundbreaking, they are interesting and (in many cases) amusing. This short work is packed with examples and exercises, and for a young screenwriter, Your Idea Machine couldn't help but jumpstart that idea file. One caveat; you'll find a fair number of typos and odd formatting issues running throughout the book; read it for the ideas and forget the messy stuff.Was this review helpful?
