    Re: Two of my favorites....

    BlondeScreenwriter,

    I believe you're thinking of SCREENWRITING FROM THE SOUL by R. Krevolin.

    I thought it was a great book...a good break from the usual "how to get an agent, write a blockbuster, you have to use this and that rule to write an effective script," stuff for a while. It talks about writing.

      Ancon....

      Ancon,

      That's the one! I've moved at least three times since I bought the book and misplaced it. I'll try to go through some boxes and see if I can locate it this week.

      I have so many books on screenwriting, I could open my own library. And the ones that offer new and fresh perspectives are becoming quite difficult to find.

        Hello, He Lied

        I think Hello, He Lied is a great book, a fascinating read, but I also found it very discouraging. 500 Ways to Beat the Hollywood Reader is a book I highly recommend.

        Other good books, although they're not about screenwriting per se, are...

        The Perfect Pitch by Ken Rotcop
        The Writer Got Screwed (but didn'thave to) by Brooke Wharton
        Framwork: A History of Screenwriting for the American Film (very encouraging and not at all dry, despite the academic-sounding title) by Tom Stempel
        The Screenwriters Survival Guide by Max Adams
