I’ll talk to an impassioned diesel mechanic about carburetors, rack and pinion steering, and engine block cubic centimeters all day long. But I become bored in seconds if I am forced to converse with someone about their cars, house, clothes, and CD collection. In life, it is the things that we do that define us, […]

1 Infinite Loop

Each week (give or take), Blogmaster2k brings you 1 Infinite Loop, in which Curtis shines a light upon the greasy recesses of geekdom and technomancy.  Email Curtis with your questions, hate mail, or guild applications. I felt that it was appropriate to start off the first of the 1 Infinite Loop article series some information about […]

When writing a long form piece like a novel or a feature screenplay, it is helpful to employ a mechanical approach to building out your story. A detailed plan is like a skeleton. Once all the bones are in place, you can release your creative side and flesh out the skeleton with unbridled character, description, and voice without having to think about where your story will wander next. Act II in your 3-act breakdown is perhaps the most mechanical part of the story building process.

Let’s be clear up front, I haven’t seen all of the nominated pictures for the top awards, but I don’t think that should preclude me from sharing my thoughts. So the following will be a list of the Best Picture nominees with a brief summary of my thoughts on each, followed by an overall impression of each of the remaining premiere categories. I will also pick which one I think should win, not which one I think will win – those are two completely different things.

There is a lot of concern these days about cloning. Ethical and ecclesiastical issues aside, I’m TOTALLY on board with clones.  For one thing, if I have a clone, I can have him do all the boring stuff in my life; like dishes and making my side of the bed. I’m currently in a University […]

Now that you have established a great foundation of conflict for your story, it’s time to put the finishing touches on act 1 of your 3-act breakdown. I love this phase of the process because I get to see the story bloom like a flower.

During this exercise, you will be forced to explore the feasibility of your story. You will have to face plot problems head on and work them out. You will discover nuances to your story that you haven’t yet considered. You will open new characters and log them into your character document. You will give yourself research assignments.

“Anyone can be a millionaire, but to become a billionaire you need an astrologer.” That’s what J.P. Morgan, early 19th century billionaire, said about the stars. The Mayan’s might have agreed. But more important to becoming a billionaire, the Mayans concerned themselves with creating an extremely accurate calendar that could not only tell time by studying the movements of heavenly bodies, it could tell the future.

Get ready to roll up your sleeves; its time to put some real elbow grease into your story structure. By now you have a good idea of what your story is going to be. You have probably been working on it in your head even when you are away from your word processor. The more you think about your story, the quicker you will find ways to add twists and turns to the plot and nuances to the characters. But it is essential to put your ideas down on paper.

You can rock climb right now; I’m serious. Though rock climbing is considered a high-risk sport, the truth is, as far as extreme sports are considered, rock climbing is a pussycat. Hitting the cliffs is not just for the adrenaline enthused hard-core thrill seeker. Anyone can get into the sport on a modest budget and with minimal experience.

`Twas the blog before Christmas and all through ‘The Rif’,

Not a key on the keyboard was clicking, not even the ‘shift’.

The glow of the monitors sat on each chair,

and the doors and the windows were locked up with care.
