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.

Because you are working more “in the heat of creation” than tree people are, what you write can be much more fragile—and you must be aware of this and protect yourself.

Writing Tips for Forest People

Keep writing. Accept the challenge of your task. Keep writing.

Remember that “clay is not cement”—this draft you are writing is not the end of the world, and everything can be changed later. Don’t be too hard on yourself too early. You can be your own worst critic—and should be!—later in the process. We want to get the first draft of a screenplay down. At this stage of the game, be your own cheerleader more than your own critic.

Romance: Boy-meets-girl love stories, treated more seriously than in a romantic comedy.

Science fiction: A story set in another time, place, universe, often with supernatural or advanced technological elements. Often crossbred with another genre.

Epic: Larger than life stories that embrace great, often historical, issues. Titanic can be called an “epic romance.”

Suspense/thriller: A story driven by “what happens next?” A mystery that keeps us on the edge of our seat. Often the hero is an ordinary person put in unordinary circumstances. There can be “romantic thrillers” like North By Northwest and “erotic thrillers” like Body Heat.
