Reading scripts is like a diet.
I don't want those deep mysterious greens, and scary orange looking vegetables. But they're good for me.
I get lazy. I try to survive without the discipline.
And that's how I end up uninspired, i.e., in the safe zone.
I look back at November when I was on a crazy schedule of one script (plus analysis for this blog) per day.
I loved it. I hated it. I went places I'd rather not go.
But for the first time, I understood why these films were "classic," "unforgettable," and "stirring."
So here's my goal for 2011: To read the remaining 71 scripts on the WGA's Top 101 Scripts of All Time.
This breaks down to one a week, sometimes two. I'll start with #101 Notorious and work backwards. Postings will be on Fridays (& the occasional Tuesdays).
Won't you join me? It's dashed lonely reading all alone.
