-- Getting Past Me ($9.99, Limelight Editions) gives writers a detailed inside look at production company readers—what’
s going through their minds, what they’re looking for, and why they may have rejected your screenplay. As a production company reader herself, author Mindi White lets writers in on readers’ trade secrets and gives you invaluable information that will ensure your work is reviewed favorably and fairly. This is more than the basics of character development and point of view. It includes plotlines that scream “Amateur,”
how to delight the reader, what to think about while writing, to-do lists, and to-don’t lists.
Fast-paced, acerbic, and extremely informative, Getting Past Me makes lessons easy and fun to absorb with insider tips and real-life examples that are consistently illuminating and often surprising.
Limelight Editions’ new book series Quick Guides are handy pocket-sized guide books for all career paths in the performing arts. Each book tackles one specific field from the perspective of the most authoritative authors.
