What do I need to Start Writing a BookSo what do I need to write a book?
I' ve got a good plan. So how do I begin to spell it? Do you want me to typing or typing? Do you want me to put each section on a different paper? I can' t figure out what each section is about.
You use a text editor. You' ll have about 20 min. to distil all the highlights, the shots, the dialogues you recall into this synthesis, so your boyfriend can picture the whole film while he is away. Use your text editor now and note this down. That' a sketch of a work.
All you have to do at this point is enjoy yourself. I don't know why I need three. Just keep in mind, everything you do is moldable. It includes what happens, when, how, and also the inner dialog, and why the actors do what they do, and any vital (or blatant) parts of the dialog. Always be prepared to destroy a lot of words if it doesn't work.
Cutting the whole scene out of the script makes everything look better. There was a situation with a little novel once and I told Ray Bradbury about it. The other thing is to create a memo pod. Twenty-nine of them at the moment, all full of interesting inspiration, dialog bites, whole sequences for which I don't have a script yet, backing technique and so on.
You create these noteboxes for yourself. I think (and why my books are called Ninety Ten in the production) that if a sketch is 90 per cent shit, it still means that it is 10 per cent good. I sometimes find the neck pattern of an outerwear and go hmmmmmmmm and paint the whole thing now, and it works; I just didn't have the ability to work it all out at that tim.
While your memos are not meant to be a ready-made item for others, you can safely pass them on if you wish. In explaining things, I often go to hyperlinks in the descriptions in my head, and then I have to reorder paras. Usually I put responses in a note book before I post them.
