I'm in the middle of a rewrite & I got stuck today. I wanted to include some exposition via an argument, move the characters, and bridge to the next scene.
To make matters worse, my mind kept going back to a spec I'd read that was so entertaining, so fun, that I despaired measuring up.
But there was one silver lining: the spec reminded me that I was trying to stuff too many things into one scene.
Hmmm..writing less meant packing in more into a smaller space. How do I write less, but also write more? I believe I will take Shane Black's advice & go read a Walter Hill script, which inspired him to be very concise.
WHAT I'VE LEARNED: I get unstuck by the greats who have gone before me.
