I just posted my take on the very first self help book for scriptwriters on my company’s website. The book is THE POETICS by Aristotle, written around 400 A.D..

What I did was to extract all actionable advice from the somehow idiosyncratic book, so that you can digest it and use it without the need to go through 400 pages of “thorny read” as some critics have put it.

In order to make his rules and recommendations easier to understand, and to give you an idea of how to use them in your writing process, I applied them to a quintessential movie, CHINATOWN, written by the great, late Robert Towne, directed by Roman Polanski.

Check my paper out at https://totellastory.net/the-toolbox/?amp=1. And look out for my article about Aristotle and Chinatown on Medium.com. I love to get feedback, so why don’t you leave me a comment, right here?

Write on, whatever it takes.
