Writing Roots

S4E7 – Writing Other Media

I could be just a writer very easily. I am not a writer. I am a screenwriter, which is half a filmmaker…. But it is not an art form, because screenplays are not works of art. They are invitations to others to collaborate on a work of art. – Paul Schrader

S4E6 – Using a Thesaurus

Don’t use a big word when a singularly unloquacious and diminutive linguistic expression will satisfactorily accomplish the contemporary necessity. – Steve Green

S3E9 – Monsters and Horror

The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown. – H.P. Lovecraft

S3E8 – Building a Pantheon

Men create gods after their own image, not only with regard to their form but with regard to their mode of life. – Aristotle
