New Book - No Country for Old Men
On the advice of Greg Weeser*, I stopped reading Story by Robert McKee. I had started that because it was "suggested reading" for a film and TV writing class I'm starting this week at Second City. Greg informed me that there were better books on screenwriting than Story, and since his college diploma has the word "Tisch" on it and he has actually written at least one screenplay, I chose to follow his advice. However, rather than start another book on screenwriting, I went with No Country for Old Men by Cormac McCarthy. I haven't seen the movie, although I've heard it's excellent, and I’ve heard the book is excellent as well. I'll let you know.
