I had an ah ha moment about theme too! Like Blake Snyder, Mr. Martell does not talk down to the reader and is a real working screenwriter who leaves you inspired to write. There is no wasted time on selling and promoting, just powertools for storytelling. Good stuff.
Highlights covered include how to differentiate characters, contrast characters, enhance theme, and craft "memorable" moments that have audiences and readers cheering.
Lots of examples from Bridesmaids and other movies to clarify ideas.
I really appreciate how his writing is clear, simple and to the point. He repeats info without making it repetitive.
Martell's books are interesting and fun reads. I would recommend this book to both screenwriters, playrights and novelists.
