The title of the article is ‘The Key Ingredient to Screenwriter Success.’ The website belongs to Marvin Acuna, a producer who offers help on screenwriting. Whether you agree or not, it is something to consider.

Make that novel happen this month

Today is the start of National Novel Writing Month and the challenge is to write a novel within the month of November. It’s a fantastic way to get that idea that’s been rumbling around your head onto paper. You just charge ahead every day and at the end of November, you have a great start. It’s fun and free. So what are you waiting for.
