  •  I am reading The Hobbit ... (5+ / 0-)

    ... and so looking forward to another installment in the fulfillment of the teenage fantasy, shared with almost a dozen other boys and girls, of turning the Tolkien books into a movie.
    My God, we spent hours ... days ... talking about how we would write scenes ... who would play certain characters ... it was maybe a little weird how obsessed we were.
    The three movies to date, btw ... were pure gold. The sp's couldn't have been better.

    I am also rereading Save the Cat because I remember it had some good advice when you're in the editing stage on a screenplay.

    Oh ... and a book called The Mothers by Vardis Fisher. A retelling of the Donner party story. I just started it on Sunday evening and couldn't put it down until I forced myself so I could get some sleep. Now that election hoopla is over, I'll probably pick it up and finish it tonight. Hell of a story teller.
