Writing is Best When We Get Out of Our Own Way

Writing is Best When We Get Out of Our Own Way | Litteris | Scoop.it

"I recall, as I was writing my latest book, my hands seemed to take on a life of their own. I would add in an unplanned character or an unforeseen (seemingly meaningless) detail."

Penelope's curator insight, June 11, 2013 1:42 PM

 

 

This article is a wonderful reminder to writers to get out of our own way when creating our stories.

 

The main thrust of the article is to stop editing and start writing! Yes, we should edit, but some writers edit to death and their novel never sees the light of day. Also, make sure you know what the story PROBLEM is and where it will END and how the character will CHANGE. This is vital and will keep you moving forward!

Sexismo e ficção científica • Momentum Saga •

É muito difícil tratar de sexismo na ficção científica. O material é produzido quase que exclusivamente por homens heterossexuais, para homens heterossexuais e existe pouca coisa fora do padrão. São poucos os exemplares de uma FC que não retrate o profundo sexismo da nossa sociedade que acaba sendo reproduzido à exaustão na mídia e nas artes.

Amazon launches Storyteller to turn scripts into storyboards -- automagically

Amazon launches Storyteller to turn scripts into storyboards -- automagically | Litteris | Scoop.it

Excerpt from review article by VentureBeat:
"Upload your script, choose some backgrounds, and magically created a professional-looking storyboard of your movie. Or the graphic novel version of your text-based anything.

Amazon Studios released Storyteller today to allow writers and filmmakers to quickly, easily — and cheaply — storyboard their scripts.

Roy Price, Amazon’s director of Studios said: “Storyteller provides a digital backlot, acting troupe, prop department, and assistant editor — everything you need to bring your story to life.”

You start by uploading a script to Amazon Studios — or by playing with one that’s already there. Then simply page through the script paragraph by paragraph. Storyteller will try to match up characters, props, and background with the words in each chunk of text, and it does a surprisingly good job.

But if you don’t like what Storyteller gives, you can choose from its library, or even upload your own custom background or characters. Currently, the software has a library of thousands of props, characters, and backgrounds..."
