A short post this week.
In class we talked about different approaches to writing dialogue. Below are several links to good articles on the craft of dialogue writing.
THIS IS A TERRIFIC MEMO from the playwright and screenwriter David Mamet to the writers of The Unit, the TV show that was popular for a spell. It covers all the important points of drama we talk about in class.
No homework this week. But those of you who wants to read his/her BREAK UP scene in class, please bring the scene with you. Alternatively, you can email the scene to me and I’ll beam it on the screen in class, so we can read it together.
