Reading and Writing…you should love both to do both

This Script Lab article has got it right (write?). This ditty talks about quirks and processes and is quite funny. But the title does say it best: if you want to write, it is vital that you read. By reading, you experience what works in published and produced media. Most important, you see what works for you. Some of the best advice I’ve ever received was, “write the book/screenplay” you would want to read/watch”. Well dear friends/writers/family/random guy sitting by the beach in L.A. reading this on his iPhone and enjoying a sunny Saturday morning (jealous btw), how are you going to know what you like or what you want to write like if you don’t read? Seems pretty simple. READ! WATCH! WRITE! And have fun, because having fun…is fun!
