    Highly Recommended for ALL writers (not just screen plays)

    I write novels. After reading his website, I chose the books due to the author. He seemed like he had something to offer. BOY DID HE EVER!! The most frustrating thing is that when I would go back to edit, I knew something was wrong but couldn't QUITE put my finger on what wasn't right. I have now read all 3 of Blake Snyder's books including Save the cat! goes to the movies. Now I can go back through my work & spot issues. I can see where I need to repair, cut stuff out, etc... I could never use an outline before yet now I can plan out my stories & not find myself at the bottom of the well crying because I've written myself into a corner! Awesome book & I think all writers could benefit plus it's written in such an entertaining way that it's so much fun. Blake entertains even as he teaches in the written word. That's impressive.

    Alana

    Alana comes up, leading three kits, Ella, Bella, and Fay. "Here is 20 Kitty Witty Bars, tuna luna flavor, and 4 Kitty Witty Bars, meaty weaty flavor." The four take their seats in the first row. Alana sits up properly. Ella puts on her 3D glasses, Bella gets her popcorn popped, and Fay gets sitcuated. "Ready!"
