Re: Philip Seymour Hoffman Dead at Age 46

Absolutely shocked when my husband told me. Very sad.

I lost my dad to alcohol addiction when I was 16. I feel for his kids.

Re: What do you think is more important: story, or quality of writing?

Yeah, it's a tricky subject.

I actually think we're dealing with 3 things here: concept, writing (aka language) & story choices.

I think everyone gets what concept is. This is the thing that makes...

I'm not a regular August reader, but I came across these tutorials awhile back. It's some of the best stuff I've seen online on writing scenes-- or at least making them better.

Re: The Ethics of Reading

I agree with the point that nobody really needs to read script after script to learn the craft or be a good writer.

I never agreed with the advice to "read every script you can find". I've always...

Re: The Black List from a user perspective

Yeah... I'm forming this opinion too.

My impression from reading about ppl's experiences so far is that the BL site skews towards virtuoso writing, as opposed to more commercial concepts. This helps...

Re: Young Adult

Saw this awhile ago. Thought it was fairly "MEH" all around. Not as funny or emotional as it should've been.

A better recent "someone going thru a crisis" movie is THE DESCENDANTS with Clooney.

Re: The Black List from a user perspective

I like the idea of having a WRITER'S PAGE listing all the scripts each writer has on the site.

Re: Black List founder Franklin Leonard answers your questions about the Black List
