Thats soo true. My first Screen Writing teacher was famous for a few things.
But what sticks in my brain is the Wanting of character, and making sure the
Hero is competent. He said: "make sure your hero wants something, and even in
a small way is capable of getting it. Even if its just a glass of water in
the first 5 pages."
BTW - I worked on Carmen Word, Math, and Time also. Good stuff maynard.
