Re: High Concept vs New High Concept

As you said in your previous comment, it's about defining high concept. Broadly? Narrowly?

I'm scrolling through this list of upcoming 2020 films (http://https://www.vulture.com/article/new-movies-released-theaters-2020.html).

Re: New Ideas

I had a serial killer idea pop into my head last week after watching two documentaries: The Eleven (https://www.aetv.com/shows/the-eleven) and a doc on Ed Kemper, the Co-Ed Killer.

I'm not sure...

Re: New Ideas

In this moment, with events in this country being stranger than fiction -- at least for me -- I find myself blocked on new ideas.

I do force myself to work on my writing in progress but I find...

Re: Picking Right Idea

Please don't instruct me on when I can assign the word: great.

You have your definition of "great" and I have mine. JTMD is great in terms that it still connects with its audience: teens. They're...

Re: Raiders of the None Arc

I'll check it out.



I don't disagree with any of this and I certainly wasn't saying giving color is all one has to do. To clarify, of course it's crucial for the writer to know a character's point...

Re: The Use of Dialogue in Character Development
