“John Truby is one of the most respected and sought-after story consultants in the film industry, and his students have gone on to pen some of Hollywood’s most successful films, including Sleepless in Seattle, Scream, and Shrek. Based on the lessons in his award-winning class, Great Screenwriting, The Anatomy of Story reveals all his secrets for writing a compelling script. The book draws on a broad range of concepts and archetypes from philosophy and mythology, offering fresh techniques and insightful anecdotes alongside Truby’s own unique approach to building an effective, multifaceted narrative. The foundations of story that he lays out are so fundamental that they are applicable─and essential─to all writers, from novelists and short-story writers to journalists, memoirists, and those interested in narrative nonfiction.”

I’ll accept this as a vacation. Instead of fretting over the fact I’m not able to get my work done, I’ll look at this as an opportunity to rest, relax, and prepare for when I can get back to work. By accepting this is a vacation I’ll enjoy myself and do things I’d normally put off.
This post is not my chipper self, but I felt it was important to show the downs alongside the ups. The truth is, life is kicking my ass, but I’ll adapt to keep moving forward. I’ll keep my head up and return stronger than ever.
We’re continuing to get rain, and the forecast indicates that the rain will continue for another week. All the dams are open, but the water level is still high. The numbers aren’t in yet, but it appears the damages will be severe. Internet is out for a large portion of the city but luckily, I’m able to get online.
