Save the Cat!

A friend of mine recommended this excellent screenwriting book to me. I was reluctant to slog through another “how to write” book, especially since I’m writing novellas, not screen plays. But I have to say that the author, Blake Snyder, has written a wonderful, succinct and educational piece. I’ve always been a “pantser” – someone who writes by the seat of her pants, as opposed to a “plotter”, who first writes an outline or synopsis of the plot. I can see that by following Mr. Snyder’s recommendations I can use a method that is a hybrid of the two extremes. I hope that will keep the writing process a fresh adventure that still follows a well planned path. I’ll let you know how it goes.
