Screenwriting Advice Article!

You are the Box Office Smash: The Personal Screenplay
by Gordy Hoffman



Right this very second, in the heart of every struggling, undiscovered screenwriter, in the dark, hidden corner deep within, there is a voice, a clear whisper, saying one thing:

You're never gonna figure this out.

And this is not referring to the story with its gaping hole, the finale missing a payoff, the hit and miss humor, the flat title.

I'm talking about freedom. The freedom to work as a screenwriter. Compensation for a home for family and a life. The resources to wake up and ply your craft and pay the freight, without obstacle. The chance to see your writing made into pictures, to work with the industry's best, to fulfill this goal of professional screenwriter. Hollywood success.

Behind this voice is the idea that somehow, some way, you'll find the hero, or the hook, logline or pitch that will punch your golden ticket. If you could only figure out what the studio wants, if you can only get a solid bead to this game, you know you can write and execute. What is the script I should write to get an agent? What is the one that will sell? It's not that I don't know how to write, I know how to write screenplays, I just need to know what they want, even though I think I know what they want, but I don't think I have the idea that they want. Yeah.

I'm not gonna figure this out, whispers the voice.

Why this uneasiness? Does it originate within ourselves? I don't think so. But where does it come from? The daily obsession with box office grosses? The news of the seven figure deals to newbies? The endless procession of boneheadedly conceived franchises-in-waiting arriving in the theatres every Friday? People winning Academy Awards for movies you would not be caught dead writing? Recognizing an idea you came up with years ago on your couch, produced with a $130 million budget drowning in CGI?

All these things are but a few of the possible reasons why this seeds unhealthy doubt and confusion in the modern screenwriter. Tracking these forces outside us and beyond our control in an effort to trudge the path to a successful screenwriting career will prove to most to be unproductive and corrosive. Basically, trying to figure out what Hollywood wants will land us in a resentment that makes "giving up" a sane response to the very challenge which used to inspire us. In short, we cannot chase a perceived trend and remember our dreams.

You cannot look at the marketplace and find your voice. You can find ideas, trends, and inspiration there, perhaps, but you can find these things driving in traffic as well. But listening to your voice is the key to creating original, compelling stories.

Your life is your own story. You have a completely unique thread of experience. By allowing yourself to express these emotional experiences, your screenplay, your story, will be different from any other and powerful, as original as your fingerprint.

Why is it powerful? When we have the courage to be specific about what we know about living, we create an authentic world an audience recognizes as the life they are living on planet Earth. This connects your audience to your story. This connection is the foundation of the phenomena of story.

Why does story mean so much to us? We recognize the triumphs and tragedies of our lives, with all the hilarity and tears. By seeing it, we are validated and it underscores meaning and purpose to living.

If we don't use what we've collected in life in our hearts and spirits, then our story loses its authenticity and the connection the audience should make fails. They do not see themselves, and when they leave the theater, they do not call their friends. When people do not call their friends after seeing a movie, the movie bombs.

When a writer opens their person to their work, when they allow themselves to be vulnerable, to risk exposure of the secrets of their life story, they take a huge step towards creating a screenplay of substantial value, a screenplay with a greater potential of a large number of tickets sold.

This is precisely why art and commerce have remained bedfellows for thousands of years. To look at the relationship between art and commerce as adversarial or incompatible is just plain foolish. Art happens when people invest their spirits in their work without fear, and story is artful when the writing is truthful and the writer is authentic.

And what do we have to be honest about? We can only lie about what we know, and we can only tell the truth about what we know. And that is what has happened to us, our life story. This is what we share.

This is not a pitch to write "what you know." This is not about writing stories about where you work or where you live. This is about writing about what you felt. You can imagine characters and worlds and actions and speech you've never personally experienced, but if you remember to infuse your choices with your emotional and spiritual struggles and victories as a human being, your screenplay will be different in the very best sense of the word.

The question you have to answer is not what does Hollywood want today. The question is how honest of a writer do you want to be. I guarantee you can write a blockbuster, you can write a box office hit. This will happen when you find an audience. And the correct path to this crowd of people is listening to yourself. If you practice, you will develop an inner ear for who you are and what you know and you will become masterful in loading your work with your fingerprints. Writing is personal work. You are the guitar. You are the box of paint. Give of that and your audience will remember why life is good and they will talk of you.

(1) FEATURE ARTICLE


You're the Expert
By Patricia L. Fry

Are you the author of a nonfiction book? How many other books have you and/or your book been mentioned in? Have authors of books on your topic quoted you? Do they recommend your book? If not, perhaps you aren't reaching out far enough with your promotional efforts.

You are an expert in your field, right? Otherwise, why would you go to the trouble of writing a book on this topic? And the fact that you have written and published the book surely gives you some credibility. But why stop there? What else could you do in order to bring attention to yourself as an authority in your field? Plenty.

Here's what you want-when someone is researching a book on the topic of your book, whether it is gardening, quilting, skydiving, dog showing, child-rearing, allergies, traveling, religion, art, writing or some obscure subject, you want this author to know about you. You want him or her to value your book and your opinion so they will add your book or company to their resource list or even quote liberally from your book (with your permission, of course). You want to stand out as an expert on your subject, so much so that other experts rely on the research you have done and the knowledge you have accumulated over the years.

How do you manage this? Exposure, exposure, exposure.
· Become known at websites related to your topic.
· Arrange to present workshops at appropriate conferences.
· Write and submit articles on your subject-lots of them.
· Rent booths at book festivals and talk to hundreds of people.
· Comment on other experts' blogs.
· Showcase your book and lots of appropriate resources at your amazing website.
· Join publishing organizations and those related to your topic.

Hey, this is the same thing that publishing professionals advise when it comes to promoting your book, isn't it? Yup! It's all part of the same process. Whether you want to make a difference, become known in your field and/or sell books, the bottom line is the same. You must understand the concept of exposure. You need to have a plan. It is imperative that you are consistent and persistent in your attempts to get exposure. And you really, really need tons of energy and creativity.

(2) PROMOTIONAL COUPS

Lynn Serafinn's first book, The Garden of the Soul: lessons from four flowers that unearth the Self (Bright Pen Books 2009) was an Amazon bestseller immediately upon release and "for a good two weeks it was ahead of many esteemed authors like Deepak Chopra, Eckhart Tolle and Neil Donald Walsch, in spite of the fact that I was an unknown author and spent virtually nothing (except lots and lots of time) on marketing and promotion," she says.

"Since the success of my book, many authors and aspiring authors have approached me, asking me how I managed to become a bestselling self-published author on a shoe-string budget.

I accredit my success entirely to five things:
Going to all the seminars I could to find out how other authors and marketers had done it
Extensive research in all the resources the Internet had to offer to a book campaign
Carefully structuring and actually starting my marketing campaign a full year before the book was released
Using blogging, newsletter, article writing and a wide range of social networking tools to cultivating strong relationships with online readers months before I had even finished writing the book
And most of all… being willing to pour ALL of myself into the “birthing” of this book

The result of all of this was threefold:
Readers got to know who I was, as a person and as a writer
I got to know who my readers were, and the more I saw who liked my writing, the more I could tailor my promotional campaign to reach them
My readers knew the title and the release date of my book months in advance (and saw the name/date over and over)"

INTRODUCTION

I have been trying to find sites that host and/or sell ebooks. A lot of the domains I tried are closed. http://www.lulu.com does host ebooks for free, but I had trouble with the site. They were helpful for two days and then disappeared. If you know of any sites that don't require a lot of work on the part of the ebook author, let me know.


(1) GRIST FOR YOUR MILL

Joe Carroccio and Paul McNeese, co-hosts of The Author's Voice program on http://www.achieveradio.com (a new series of broadcast interviews will begin in January) have further combined their experience and talents and are now developing a unique matrix of web-based solutions to answer the needs of the author/speaker community for both wider exposure to the mass media (print, broadcast and online) nationwide and for local exposure to possible public speaking engagements, book signings, etc. in the cities and towns where they (literally or figuratively) "live."

In January, The Author's Roost - a brand new online portal site and membership organization filled with resources and promotional opportunities for authors, speakers and professional communicators from the business community -- will "go live."

A new membership organization, The American Author/Speaker Alliance, combined with an author- and speaker-focused resource web site called The Author's Roost http://www.authorsroost.com, will provide writing and speaking professionals with a single, comprehensive source for information and education in all aspects of their chosen specialties, as well as ongoing opportunities to participate in tightly-targeted, individually-focused and custom-tailored promotional efforts for reaching out to the core audiences served by any individual member.
For the full story on this new concept -- and an exciting (but limited as to both time and numbers) opportunity to become a "beta tester" helping to develop the site's content and direction to best serve your own and your community's specific purposes -- take a look at http://www.authorsroost.com.


Lillian Cauldwell and Carolyn Howard-Johnson invite authors to participate in a frugal and fabulous reading and cross-promotion adventure starting March, 2010.

Passionate Internet Voices Talk Radio will feature authors of published books of fiction to join in the first-ever serial weekly literary festival where authors read brief excerpts from their books over PIVTR’s radio network.

Nonfiction and Poetry Weeks will come later in 2010.
Authors may book a reading on what may be a first-of-its-kind event:
It is only $10 for 10 minutes. Authors may contact lillian.cauldwell@gmail.com before January 15, 2010.

The special will air March 21 thru March 28, 10 to 11 p.m. (New York time) except Wednesday evening when the show starts 10:30 and ends at 11:30 p.m.

==========================


(2) FEEDBACK

Referring to Peter Bowerman's "From the Pen Of......" about not being stingy sending out review copies of one's books, Gerri Helms writes:

Fran, this is ab-soul-utely true! The $5 it costs me to send a promotional copy of Trust God and Buy Broccoli is worth every penny. This past quarter was the highest sales for my two-year-old book ever (Amazon, B&N, etc). My return was triple what my 'freebie give-aways' cost.


Referring to my call for stories on how you promoted your book award, Tina Howe wrote that when, in late Sept. 2009, her book, The TrailFolk of Xunar-kun" won first place in the Science Fiction/Fantasy category of Rebecca's Reads "The Written Art Awards, " she "ordered the pretty metallic award stickers and applied them to every book before attending a recent book fair. When I told potential buyers about the award, they did pay attention, and I know that this resulted in sales. Since the award was for the second book in the series, many people also bought the first one. So awards do pay off," she says.

Richard Gilbert, author of Marching Up Madison Avenue (Behler Publications 2008), feels that the TV show does not depict an accurate picture of Madison Avenue in its heyday. An Advertising Age columnist wrote that "Richard's got a bone to pick with the creators of 'Mad Men' and, instead of translating his frustrations, we figured we'd just run his commentary as is." And they did. What better publicity could he possibly get for his book?
