YES! In my LSF newsletter, there's a link to their Breakfast Club and the theme this week is: "Stop reading structure books and start writing "
Thanks for the unexpected backup, John Yorke: He will be talking about “The Curse of the Screenwriting Gurus” and how decades of “how to” books have destroyed the serious study of structure."
Perhaps not exactly the problem I'm having, the deluge of information, but I think John and I are on the same page (nope, never met the man - but I can tell).
I'm going to make a huge effort to stay away from these 'how to' websites and just crack on with my writing again. I've read hundreds now, some have been interesting, some have been really helpful and some have been downright confusing, but we'll see if any of it has sunk in!
Meeting Hayley McKenzie next week to discuss my mega-prize of mentoring, and I absolutely can't wait.
Today though, I have a day with my writing buddy.
Ps - the motorbike has NOTHING to do with this post, clearly! It's nice to have a picture though, to break the monotony - and as I love both bikes and writing, I took a liberty and added my next motorbike, funds allowing.
