What’s paranormal love got to do with a screenplay? April 11, 2009

It wasn’t exactly a paranormal experience but what the heck. I spent Saturday in Brea, CA, with the Orange County Chapter of the Romance Writers of America. (CLICK HERE FOR THEIR WEB SITE.) cat

Guest speaker was Blake Snyder, a best-selling author and screenwriter, who spoke with great gusto about what novelists can learn from Hollywood screenwriters …. and even what he’d learned from romance writers! (Hey — you want to learn his 15 tips on developing a screenplay check out his books: SAVE THE CAT! THE LAST BOOK ON SCREENWRITING YOU’LL EVER NEED and SAVE THE CAT! GOES TO THE MOVIES: THE SCREENWRITER’S GUIDE TO EVERY STORY EVER TOLD. I still don’t have a story in my mind, but Snyder sure can inspire even the most couch-potato writer to start thinking creatively!!! (Or at least this one.)

During lunch he joined Alyson Noel (Evermore) and Janet Quinn (Dressed for Dying) at a book signing. (Ummm — no — I forgot to bring my Evermore book! But look for an interview with Alyson soon. I just need to email her when she’s not swamped. Check out her great blog at HERE. She has pics from the Saturday event!)

And if you’re in the SoCal region and are an aspiring romance writer, check out the group. You’re surrounded by romance writers of all levels and imaginations and genres.

Again — check their Web site for information. They meet once a month.
