Sigh. I love my job. Although I got stuck working a Saturday this week, today doesn't seem so busy. It's nice and quiet. A perfect day for reading a book. I'm reading how to create memorable voices and fictional conversations that crackle with wit, tension and nuance. The short title is writing dialog. I kinda wish some of the screenwriting meetups out there could function as a reading club for these how to books. Reading how-to books can be slow for me, especially if the contain exercises.
Do you know how long it takes me to finish the exercises? If I only had a deadline.
