    Complete amateur seeks advice

    Discussion in 'General Writing' started by aimeefriedland2, Jun 26, 2007.

    Hi, my name's Aimee Friedland and I am an aspiring writer. Lately I have taken great interest in filmmaking, and, in particular, screenwriting. As my, little, knowledge of writing lies in the 'short stories' and 'academic' realms, would anyone be so kind as to offer some "useful" links which would be beneficial for an amateur like me?

    Thanks

    i'm not so sure of this gal's bona fides... despite her list of supposed credits in her bio on a rather amateurish-looking website, she has only one [grave secret] listed on a bare but for that imdb listing page... 'underground aces' does not show her as 'writer' in any capacity, nor does the other 'produced credit' she claims, 'hard to hold'...

    instead of this site, i'd suggest going to a real pro's... such as terry rossio's or bill martell's... and chris lockhart's site is the best of 'em all... he's a major exec at one of the big 3 hollywood agencies...

    here are the links:
