David Corbett talks about CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT THROUGH THE PAIN AND PROMISE OF LIFE. We discuss pathological maneuvers and the pain of life; how a theme emerges from moments of helplessness; the idea of persistent virtues; earning the redemptive moment; the power of giving an unsympathetic character a kid or a dog; and neo-noir and the morally flawed character.

I talk with Roland Denzel about THE BENEFITS (AND COSTS) OF MEMBERSHIP in writer’s groups, including the importance of understanding your goals; factoring in opportunity costs and assessing if and how each opportunity gets you closer to those goals; finding your “medium point” group; the option of creating your own group; the downside of a wealth of resources; and giving yourself permission to let it go.

Since 2008, Tammy Gross, the Scriptpreneur, has been editing & doctoring screenplays for writers of all skill levels. With Tammy's help, Shia LaBeouf's autobiographical script was transformed into the compelling story that is now the award-winning film, HONEY BOY. Her own screenplay-turned-novel became a bestseller through her Reel Novels imprint, and it is slated for late 2022 film production by an A-List TV producer.
