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.

At the heros call to action, which often comes just before the first plot point, our main character commits to the story, so to speak.
The Heros Call to Action
Each complication leads directly to the heros call to action.
Each of these complications moves the story closer to the moment when the hero has to make a decision: Benjamin decides to begin an affair with Mrs. Robinson, the anti-hero in Fargo learns he must go through with his scheme after all, and Jake commits to making the investigation that will clear his name.

But Screenwriters Adjust to Being Bit Players Again, to quote the title of this article. The mid-90s gold rush that resulted in multimillion-dollar scripts (and some very bad movies) is over, Kennedy concludes.
It was like this big scam, says Chris Gore, editor of the online magazine Film Threat. There was all this buzz, all these bragging rights and all these ego-driven deals. But really what happened was that screenwriting turned into an industry preying on all these people from Michigan or someplace who think theyre going to come out here and write a screenplay and make $1 million overnight. It became like the lottery.
An article by Dana Kennedy in the New York Times (Dec. 9, 2001) put the phenomenon in context.
Another misconception about screenwriting concerns money: that screenwriting is an easy or at least likely way to get rich. Especially in the 1990s, the newspapers were full of stories about million-dollar screenplay sales, and naturally a lot of budding writers took interest.
