Maximum Screenwriting: 25 Commonly Asked Questions and Straight Answers by Jeff Schimmel

Jeff Schimmel tells screenwriters things that others don't discuss, and he does it in such an interesting and straight forward way that is both entertaining and easy to read. The title may claim 25 questions answered, but it's really far more than that! Just another book that I'm glad to add to my s...

Troy James Weaver

Any fans of his? If you haven't read this guy, you're missing out. His books are short, almost like a collection of vignettes. Marigold is probably my favorite book ever. It's about a suicidal floral salesman searching for reasons to keep living.

Turning Pro

Currently reading "Turning Pro" by Steven Pressfield - the follow up to his highly successful "The War of Art". I like how the chapters/sections are a page or less, allowing me to dip and out when I need to :)

Poems by Pablo Nruda

Tonight I can write the saddest lines. Write, for example,'The night is shattered and the blue stars shiver in the distance.' The night wind revolves in the sky and sings. Tonight I can write the saddest lines. I loved her, and sometimes she loved me too. Through nights like this one I held her in m...

Crowdsourcing

I am currently reading Richard Botto's 'Crowdsourcing For FilmMakers'. Brilliant information in an enjoyable read! I have been hitting Social Media for years, in the hope of building an interested 'Crowd'. A lot of rethinking and targeting to be done, methinks. :-) Highly recommended: https://www.amazon. ...

The Sven Hassel Collection

Grittiest portrait of World War 2 I have ever read. Very graphic too. Perfect stuff for a mini-series. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/19497217-the-sven-hassel-collection...

The Godfather Notebook

As many of you already know, Francis Ford Coppola started out with The Godfather by reading the book. He then took that book and created his own prompt book filled with notes. He basically said he relied more so on that than he did when writing the actual screenplay. This notebook showed me so much...

The Jungle.

The jungle. “Chicago will be ours.” The last sentence in the book.

Bringer of Chaos by Kayelle Allen

Rude - by Katie Hopkins

There are a good number of people on the planet that simply do not like this woman, her views or her choice of words, indeed, what she promotes overall. But, no one can deny that she is in your face and says what she feels without fear of reprisal. Sometimes, I agree, her words can be dangerous and...

I think I will read this out of curiosity. I don’t know why a lot of people hate her, hate is a powerful emotion hardly worthy, she says what she thinks....so what?

Kaye Bewley

Hi Debbie, thanks for commenting. I've never hated anyone but, I do confess to disliking Ms Hopkins before I read this book. I believed her to be some pompous stuck up human being who looked down on t...

“Cleaning lady in Pub”? Kate is definitely a dark horse. I think that although a lot of people admit they dislike her, its probably a scenario of “Love To Hate”, rather than total non respect. If a ma...
