About this book and why I wrote it.... I  LOVE to organize things and create systems and methods for practical use. On the other hand, I love nurturing creativity. The amazing thing I've discovered about writing screenplays is that because you have to fit your script inside certain structures -- such as the length being around 100 pages  or so -- it actually requires more creativity to write a great story  than a novel!  You have to fit so much stuff inside that 100 pages -- story and character development and plot and theme and captivating character-revealing dialogue -- that you have to be creative to make it work!


Call me the systems geek that I am (and love being) because this book will HELP you both organize all the elements of your screenplay while bringing out your creativity and giving you access to ideas you have for your script that are buried deep inside that may not be conscious yet! 


This book is an outcome of merging the techy side of me I developed as a computer science and systems person in my undergrad studies and fascination with human nature and the idea of how we are moved by story when I earned my Ph.D. in Mythological Studies.


My personal mission is to help creative types with the business aspects of their careers and the tedious organizing and planning required so they can most effectively do what they want in their creative life.
