The Juno logline in yesterday’s post set the tone for today’s post which I found in a book that was recently published called Now Write! Screenwriting; Screenwriting Exercises from Today’s Best Writers and Teachers, edited by Shelly Ellis and Laurie Lamson. Good stuff—and will give you a break from those longer posts I’ve been cranking out.
