Screen­writ­ers on Screen­writ­ing is a blog ded­i­cated to writ­ing tips from work­ing writ­ers. While advice from gurus has its place, I’m con­stantly search­ing the web for advice from indus­try pro­fes­sion­als who are cur­rently get­ting their hands (and key­boards) dirty in the busi­ness. Screen­writ­ers on Screen­writ­ing is a place I started to aggre­gate all the links I col­lect into one easy-to-find place. And I’ve made it pub­lic because I fig­ured there might be other writ­ers out there sift­ing through the hun­dreds of screen­writ­ing blogs search­ing for the same real-world insights that I was.

You won’t find many how-tos or beat sheets, but you will find inter­views with showrun­ners and screen­writ­ers, from other blogs, mag­a­zines, etc. If you have any links to sug­gest, please sub­mit them at Screen­writ­ers on Screen­writ­ing. I’m always look­ing for new material!

This spring and sum­mer, local writ­ing pro­gram DISCO (Desert Island Sup­ply Com­pany) was kind enough to let me lead a work­shop series for teens enti­tled Writ­ing a Novel is Not Impos­si­ble. I sup­pose my work on my first young adult novel Dar­win, Singer (FREE today August 24th and tomor­row August 25th for your Kin­dle or Kin­dle app, click here) and a few semes­ters of teach­ing expe­ri­ence qual­i­fies me to lead such a series, but I was still ner­vous going in nonethe­less. Where to begin? I’d be teach­ing stu­dents from ages 13 to 18, and that rep­re­sents a huge gap in matu­rity and writ­ing expe­ri­ence. How would I tackle this prob­lem?

Ellie over at The Selkie Reads Sto­ries writes,

Nadria Tucker’s novel is hilar­i­ous, heart­break­ing, and hope­ful, with a sense of real­ity, and writ­ing that’s just perfection…
