I moved from NYC to LA in October, 2003. And though I still think NYC is the greatest city in the world, I'm truly loving life here in the City of Angels. I'm a writer, reader, and occasional picture-taker.

New Article

The new issue of scr(i)pt is out. It features the much anticipated Pirates movie on the cover, with Bill Martell interviewing co-writer Terry Rossio.

On page 24 of the same issue, you'll find my article "Concept and Story: The Two Most Important Elements to any Spec Screenplay." Oddly enough, the article is about the two most important elements to any screenplay you write on spec -- you guessed it, the screenplay's overall concept and its overall story structure. I explore why specifically these two elements are the most important, and also ways to develop those two areas specifically.

Enjoy!

Congrats on the article, Fun Joel! I'll be sure to check it out when I get back. I'm in Copenhagen at the moment (and for a few more). I'm excited to see Pirates -- it doesn't open here until Wednesday.
