Today's Writing Quote
"Every 5 to 10 pages, I want a big fist to come out of the screenplay and punch the reader in the gut."
— Allan Durand
Today's Inspirational Video
To me, there is no more inspirational creative figure than Bob Dylan. The very first song I learned to play on the guitar when I was 14 was "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right". It was music which led me away from a life in academics and into this life I know now: Writer and Teacher. And throughout my journey, Dylan has been a consistent part of my musical soundtrack. In this video, listen to how strong his voice is, how clear and powerful his performance. The song itself is a testament to metamorphosis which lies at the heart of the Hero's Journey and virtually every story. Be inspired by Bob Dylan!
