Justin Sloanabout this book: This is an EXCERPT from the book Creative Writing Career: Becoming a Writer of Movies, Video Games, and Books.
This section comprises the entire section on screenwriting, to include screenwriter interviews, and is Part Four of the book.
Want to be a screenwriter? This book will guide you as you position yourself for a career as a writer, and includes interviews with the following:
• Stephan Bugaj (Pixar and beyond)
• Anthony Burch (Borderlands 2)
• Joshua Rubin (Assassins Creed 2)
• Will Wight (the Traveler's Gate trilogy)
And many more!
Everyone wants to be a writer, and they want to know what they can do to make that dream come true. However, most aspiring writers do not understand how to position themselves so they are ready when presented with an opportunity. They identify themselves as writers but have no writing samples, or their websites and social media talk all about their paintings or music but say nothing of who they are as writers.
Based on a lifetime of struggling to make it as a creative writer, "Creative Writing Career: Becoming a Writer of Movies, Video Games, and Books" is a guide for aspiring writers to help them position themselves in an extremely competitive field. The book includes information on the writing process and ways to improve one's craft, but mostly focuses on how to get discovered and where to concentrate energy in the meantime. The content of the book is supplemented by writer interviews, featuring some incredibly gifted people who share the wisdom they have gained. With writing, as with most aspects of life, I have chosen to rely on those with demonstrated wisdom to move ahead. This book presents that wisdom for the reader to do the same.
