Quote of the Day: Tom Stoppard

I write scenes – often quite long scenes – mainly because I still get seduced into writing six lines where one and a half will do.

Quote of the Day: Greg Marcks

Think of story as the plan and screenplay as the execution. A screenplay is a story told in scenes, each scene necessary to tell the story. At this stage you’re just testing if each scene is necessary. When planning a screenplay, I try to write the story in prose first, without dialog, with each scene represented by either a sentence or a paragraph. Then I read and revise the condensed story, omitting what is unnecessary.
