Script: 10 Things I Hate About You

This one is an oldie but a goodie, and a great resource for those screenwriters (like myself) who are working on adaptations of Shakespeare. 10 Things I Hate About You is a modernization of The Taming of the Shrew. It would be good to take a look at if you’re having trouble figuring out how to honor your original source material while modernizing it and making it your own. This script is written by Karen McCullah Lutz and Kirsten Smith.

Quote of the Day: Robert McKee

Write every day, line by line, page by page, hour by hour. Do this despite fear. For above all else, beyond imagination and skill, what the world asks of you is courage, courage to risk rejection, ridicule and failure. As you follow the quest for stories told with meaning and beauty, study thoughtfully but write boldly. Then, like the hero of the fable, your dance will dazzle the world.
