BtO Contest: Win Linda Cowgill's The Art of Plotting
Posted by Colleen Thompson
A friend gave me a brand, spanking new copy of Linda Cowgill's guide for screenwriters, The Art of Plotting: Add Emotion, Suspense, and Depth to Your Screenplay and asked if I'd like to give it away on the blog.
I seriously thought about swiping it for my own, but since my to be read pile threatens to scrape the ceiling, I've restrained myself.
To be eligible to win the drawing, all you have to do is post a comment telling us what future writing-related topics would you like to see us discuss in future posts here on Boxing the Octopus.
Linda Cowgill is a screen and TV screenwriter, instructor, and author of several books on writing. You can read more about her here.
We welcome payola in the form of pies, cakes, neatly folded laundry and free books!
In accordance with FTC regulations, we're required to inform readers that we receive books from publishers, authors, and PR folk for review. We'd like to receive money via an offshore bank account, but that hasn't happened yet. When my dad was in radio back in the '50s, a local baker used to sneak over in the dead of night and fill the back seat of his car with bread and pastries. We would NOT object to this. Please review our review policy here. And let us know if we should leave the car outside the garage tonight.
Peace, love, and statutory compliance ~
