Dissapointing

This is more a review and critique of horror films and screenplays than fiction books. While the two genres are similar, and the three act formula works in both formats, its not very informative for writers of either. This comes across as written on the fly, without any real ambition to be productive or informative. If you want a good book on writing in general, and horror specifically, Stephen King's "On Writing" is still the best game in town.

Short but to the point. I am about to write my 1st

it is very worth listening to, especially if you are a novice like myself.

From his presentation, I am now listening to weavers world by Clive Barker, who I knew nothing about before this.

I don't read..... but I am listening carefully. D. P. Conway
