Ed Speleers Tobit Writer

PREMISE: Tobit is an observant Dutch Jew living in Amsterdam. He lives correctly, giving alms and burying the dead. In spite of his good works, Tobit is struck blind. Concurrent with Tobit’s story is that of Sarah, daughter of one of Tobit’s distant relative, whose seven successive husbands are each killed by a demon on their wedding night. When Tobit and Sarah pray to God for deliverance, God sends the angel Raphael to act as intercessor. Tobit regains his sight, and Sarah marries Tobit’s son Tobias. The story closes with Tobit’s thanksgiving and an account of his death. This is actually a Jewish short story possibly dating from Persian times in some Bibles is the book of Tobit, named after the father of its hero.

Just read it.

Try to read it “as a stranger.” Read it quickly, from beginning to end in one sitting, and don’t take any notes. Just read it.

When you come back to your script, ready to rewrite, do one more thing before you begin: read the script.

And take some time off. Give yourself at least a few days, and if possible a week, before you return to your script. You want to try and get some distance from it before you begin what I consider to be the most important part of the writing process, which is rewriting.

So one of the first tasks of a tree person is to move from logline to 3-act dramatic structure. Let’s look at another example of this process.

From Logline to 3-Act Structure

This, then, is the dramatic structure of our story. Let’s look at another example, using a logline from one of my students.

The President convinces everyone that the First Lady’s offer is only a ploy, orchestrated by the terrorists. During the ensuing raid, the terrorist-lover manages to save the First Lady—but is killed himself, as all of the terrorists are. The First Lady, instead of being thankful to be rescued, gives a speech condemning her husband’s use of overkill and publicly announces her divorce, ruining her husband’s career.
