Script your deepest desires, awaken your potential, and love the show you call life.
As a story strategist and screenwriter, Kristina Paider has analyzed tens of thousands of movie scenes, asking, "How does this character and this action legitimately move the plot forward?" In The Hollywood Approach, she takes the same principles used to create heroes and heroines for the big screen, and shows you how to apply them to real life to live your next wildest dream.
In this gutsy guide, you will learn how to channel all your resources-your character DNA, your strengths and flaws, your allies, mentors, and even your antagonists-to achieve great things.
Practical, soulful, and inspired, The Hollywood Approach will show you how to level up in life, say yes to yourself, and perform feats of badassery.
