February Writing Tip 3

I love movies. And I love analyzing movie scripts and taking tips from them for novel writing.

Sometimes it feels dangerous to have so many pages to tell your story on. So dangerous in fact, you can write yourself in circles. There seems to be no end. With movie scripts there’s no place for endless pieces of paper…for endless scenes…chapters. Looking at the bones of a movie script helps me to get to the bones of a manuscript. Then I do what all novelist do, I add the ‘meat’ of the story.

This piece of advice has become really helpful in grounding my writing. I hope it helps you too *smile*
