The Writer's Compass (Paperback) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thew best little screenwriting book in town! This book combines the collaborative efforts of a multitude of writers and workshops dealing specifically with screenwriting. Hence, it's sort of a cliff-notes to writing your first draft, along with the elements you need to keep the re-write process going. However, it's also presented in a nurturing way to help the budding writer get through the roadblocks leading to living the writers life. Ive read many screenwriting books, taken courses, and attended workshops, and this book includes everything I learnt from all of them, and clears Parallel terms. From starting, to setting, to mapping not outlining bc it can block the creative flow, to character development, to dialogue, through to the Hero's Journey and character arch's - this book covers it in a crazy user-friendly manner.
