Learning from Movies

Leave a comment

Almost everyone loves movies. We grew up seeing them and now we can access movie channels, Netflix, and other resources 24/7.  Just as writers can learn from reading books by successful authors, we can also learn about plot, character development, pacing and dialogue.

A well-known author and writers’ conference presenter told me that studying script writing and movies is a great way to develop fiction writing.

One of my favorite blogs examines movies. It is a great resource for changing your viewpoint on learning from movies, not just watching them. Visit Cinema Toast. Writer, Kimberly Black provides a fresh look at the cinema and the movies we love.
