Real Screenwriting: The Business & The Life by Ron Suppa

There are lots of books on screenwriting out there, most of them covering the same tips — the 12 step programs to turn your idle daydreams into award-winning screenplays. My previous books and the 100 or so columns and articles I had written for various trade publications dealt instead with the hard facts of the business and everyday life of the screenwriter. This column will continue in that vein, offering up the yin and yang of a writer’s daily angst and a straightforward view of a real screenwriting life. I hope you enjoy it, get inspired or frustrated by it and will write me your thoughts either way.
