Summary

To break into the screenwriting game, you need a screenplay that is not just good, but great. Superlative. Stellar. In Writing Movies you'll find everything you need to know to reach this level. And, like the very best teachers, Writing Movies is always practical, accessible, and entertaining.  
The book provides a comprehensive look at screenwriting, covering all the fundamentals (plot, character, scenes, dialogue, etc.) and such crucial-but seldom discussed-topics as description, voice, tone, and theme. These concepts are illustrated through analysis of five brilliant screenplays-Die Hard, Thelma & Louise, Tootsie, Sideways, and The Shawshank Redemption. Also included are writing assignments and step-by-step tasks that take writers from rough idea to polished screenplay. Written by Gotham Writers' Workshop expert instructors, Writing Movies offers the same winning style and clarity of presentation that have made a success of Gotham's previous book Writing Fiction, which is now in its 7th printing.  
Named the "best class for screenwriters" in New York City by MovieMaker Magazine, Gotham Writers' Workshop is America's leading private creative writing school, offering classes in Manhattan and on the Web at www.WritingClasses.com. The school's interactive online classes, selected as "Best of the Web" by Forbes, have attracted thousands of aspiring writers from across the United States and more than sixty countries.

    The Highly Sensitive Person: How to Thrive When the World Overwhelms You by Elaine N. Aron: Conversation Starters
    
     
    Since its original publication in 1996, Dr. Elaine Aron’s book The Highly Sensitive Person: How to Thrive When the World Overwhelms You have been translated into 18 languages and has helped millions of people around the world. Author Elaine Aron introduced the world to a very distinct personality trait. She claimed that it affects one out of five people in the world. She called this HSP or the Highly Sensitive Person. She described this person as highly sensitive because of his sensitive nervous system. This person is aware of his surroundings and these affect the person at an intensified level. This person’s key quality is his ability to ponder, explore and associate everything that surrounds him. According to Aron, this “sensitivity is anything but a flaw”. In The Highly Sensitive Person, she shifts the perspective on the stereotypes placed on HSPs and helps HSPs themselves to view their personality as an asset, not a liability. 
    
     
    
    
     
    Counseling and Human Development says that Aron’s book is the first to talk about this personality and help those who have it to “make the most of it.” The New Times says that The Highly Sensitive Person is “a valuable resource.”

    Black Sheep and Lame Ducks -...

    The fun and fascinating follow-up to the international bestseller Red Herrings and White Elephants   Why do people put their "skeletons in a closet," "have a hunch," "get the cold shoulder," "get dressed up to the nines," or "call a spade a spade?" These phrases are used every day, yet most people have little or no idea where most of them come from. In Black Sheep and Lame Ducks, Albert Jack takes readers on a journey through the curious- and often bizarre-origins of hundreds of their favorite idioms and expressions.   For example, "wearing your heart on your sleeve" comes from the Middle Ages, when a lady would "give her heart" in the form of a handkerchief pinned to the sleeve of a knight who was about to go into battle. And calling someone the "black sheep in the family" refers to a thousands- year-old belief that a black lamb in a flock was unpopular because its fleece was undyeable and therefore less valuable.   With Black Sheep and Lame Ducks, any language-lover can feel like a "Smart Aleck"-and also know exactly who that was.  Albert Jack has become something of a publishing phenomenon, clocking up millions of sales with his series of bestselling adventures tracing the fantastic stories behind everyday phrases (Red Herrings and White Elephants), the world's great mysteries (Loch Ness Monsters and Raining Frogs), food history (What Caesar did for My Salad, pub names (The Old Dog and Duck) and nursery rhymes (Pop Goes the Weasel).
