Okay #screenwriters, what's on your Christmas wish list this year? (Besides selling your screenplay to Hollywood for a million dollars - we'll assume that's a given.) #Screenwriting software? Books? Turning part of your house into a "writer's cave"?

When your story is ready for rewrite, cut it to the bone. Get rid of every ounce of excess fat. This is going to hurt; revising a story down to the bare essentials is always a little like murdering children, but it must be done.

—Stephen King

I could be just a writer very easily. I am not a writer. I am a screenwriter, which is half a filmmaker. … But it is not an art form, because screenplays are not works of art. They are invitations to others to collaborate on a work of art.

- Paul Schrader
