This is supposed to be a class on writing screen plays. It's really not and clearly the "King" who wrote it never had a good one either. Lets start where I stopped listening. The "author" made a huge mistake. He started talking about something he clearly did not fully understand "Show don't tell". Somehow he thinks this has to do with dialogue. In a way it makes sense considering his age and his lack of credits. In todays screen writing community it always seems to be about dialogue. It's, simply, not! "Show don't tell is about the action part of your "script" not the dialogue thus "Show" don't "Tell". I could go into his flat reductive and cliche characters but why bother. Just don't buy this book. If you want to learn story buy the books he steals from. "On writing" by Steven King and "Story" by Robert McKee. If you're desperate you could even steal from "Save the Cat" as Scottie does.
This is THE book for Screenwriters & Writers!
It's the perfect audiobook for anyone interested in writing. It walks you through the whole process and sure it's aimed at screenwriting it's really helped me plan out a novel I've been working on.
"Finish the Script!" is a streamed lined less abstract version of "Save the Cast!" Instead of theories and philosophies you get practical information that will help guide you through the writing process.
"Finish the Script!" is a mix of lectures, assignments, and example pages from a screenplay. Eric magically managed to bring all three together so that they really meshed and felt distinct. I can't imagine anyone else doing a better job at reading the book.
I loved "Virigin Dad," the fake screenplay within the book. Watching the characters get created and then getting to know them as they were fleshed out was fantastic. Not only will I remember them and their story but seeing their journey has helped me become a better writer.
