    • Save The Cat

      For the novice screenwriter this is a reasonable book to have on your shelf. It lays out a very rigid template based on the author's own ideas so if you are of that mind, then by all means read what Blake Snyder has to say. Even if you walk away with just one useful tip it is worth the discounted price. Personally, after having corresponding with Mr. Snyder, I was a bit disappointed that he did not follow some of his own advice in the book, but that doesn't diminish some of the usefulness of the book. I especially liked the "Pope in the Pool" trick.

    • I've been "saved!"

      Save the Cat is the best book to buy to help you figure out your story line. It assumes you already know how to format a screenplay and delves into structuring your screenplay...where should the midpoint fall? Where should there be a death? Where must the theme of your movie be stated? This is the book that will help you write a screenplay that actually sells. Blake has sold 13 screenplays--I'm listening to what he says!!!
