November article and a BIG ANNOUNCEMENT

Those of you who read this blog may have noticed I usually get my monthly article posted right as the month runs out. Though I have been chipping away at my November article, it doesn't look like I will get this one finished before the 30th. But I do have a good excuse. I have been waiting to make this announcement, and now seems like a good a time as any.

Throughout 2012 I have been working, almost nonstop, on completing my first book Screenwriting Down to the Atoms: Digging Deeper into the Craft of Cinematic Storytelling.

Atoms is a comprehensive guide on screenwriting for the beginning to advanced writer, making use of my unique Scriptmonk method with its focus upon the Story Spine, the storyteller-audience relationship, and the proper communication of story information. Intended as the next generation of screenwriting guides, Atoms not only explores established concepts in greater detail than ever before, but introduces many, many new perspectives and groundbreaking methods yet to be found in any other source.

I am very excited about this book. It is the culmination of years of study and possibly the beginning of some big things. Final revisions are reaching completion. Published copies are expected to be available from online retailers by mid-January in both hardcopy and e-book formats. I will keep readers updated in the coming months.
