A Lesson From Screenwriting


Scott P. Scheper

Downtown San Diego, CA




Tuesday, 1:52 p.m.

Dear Friend,

I just finished a sixty-minute knowledge dev session on the book, Writing Movies For Fun and Profit.

It was written by the two screenwriters behind Night at the Museum, Taxi (2004), and Reno 911!: Miami.

I purchased the book several weekends ago at a Barnes & Noble after perusing the "Writing" section.

For a while now I've been interested in the art of crafting great stories.

Stories are a critical factor in distributing your work.

No matter how good your product is, if you can't craft a coherent story, it'll fail to take off.

Therefore, I'd like to share one useful lesson I gleaned from the book.

It's one of the simplest frameworks for writing a great story that I've ever come across.

Here it is…

If a story doesn't have this structure, it won't sell:

Act I: You get a likable guy stuck up a tree.

Act II: You throw rocks at him.

Act III: You get him down out of a tree.

That's it.

There are several other golden nuggets from the book, and I've gone ahead and compiled these for you.

I took screenshots of the bibcards and maincards I created, which share these other lessons.

I posted them in my Scott Scheper Subscribers portal (which you can access after joining The Scott Scheper Letter).

I hope this sparks your interest in crafting a great story for your work.

Warm regards,

And stay crispy, my friend.
