A professional script reader read 300 screenplays for five different studios, all the while tracking the many recurring problems. The infographic he made with the collected data offers a glimpse at where screenwriting goes wrong.
pay attention to this
this is important even if you don’t write scripts
This is exceedingly important to all storytellers
at my school there’s an english teacher and an american teacher and they always glare at each other and when they pass each other in the hallway the american teacher will say ‘good show governor’ or something and the english teacher will say ‘god bless the land of the free’ and both in terrible accents and like the whole school ships it
when i first read this i thought to myself, what school teaches american as a subject?
The beautiful thing about Hans is that there are a lot of ways he can go. I think that this particular interpretation suits your story VERY well, because Hans in the movie is just so indifferent to Anna, ultimately, and that’s what hurts her so much. It doesn’t matter who she is; she’s just kind of this thing to use to get somewhere, a tool to be used when necessary and that can be put away and ignored when no longer necessary. It’s working for me here, anyway, and I’m very picky about my Hans characterization lmao
2. Is there a trope you’ve yet to try your hand at, but really want to?
To be honest, I really want to write something just so incredibly crack-ficcy. I REALLY can’t write crack fic because I’m an absolute slave to canon characterization, and it would be nice to be able to fully let that go and just write something crazy stupid.
9. Which fic has been the hardest to write?
In terms of keeping my focus and staying consistent, Goose Girl. I am a very “write-as-you-go” kind of girl and with a multi-chapter you just…can’t really do that. So that was a huge struggle. In terms of emotional content (like, actually having to stop myself for a second and calm down) the Day 12 Hanna Week fic absolutely killed me. I accidentally let a lot of my own childhood get into that one, and just…yeah. It was not an easy fic to write at all.
10. Which fic has been the easiest to write?
My first Robstar drabble was done in literally thirty minutes, and I actually liked how it turned out, so there’s that! My king!Hans/ghost!Anna fic (which was inspired directly by littlekristoff's amazing fanart) was also done very very quickly and legit just sort of flew fully formed from my head to the keyboard lol. I felt like a conduit for both fics. :D
"hey daria u wanna go party"
uhhh no i have to stay indoors n mope
"haha daria ur something else"
15. If you could choose one of your fics to be filmed, which would you choose?
Oh MAN. I’ll do one for both my fandoms. Since you’re in the Frozen fandom, Frozen first: this one. It’s my favorite fic that I’ve written for these two, because I feel like it’s still the closest I’ve gotten to my ideal Hans characterization and I’m far prouder of it than I should be, lol.
As for Teen Titans fandom, Goose Girl, obviously, since it’s my big fun multichapter (which I am actually legitimately updating very very soon! EXCITEMENT)
If you want to be friends with me you don’t have to be “Hi, um, can, ya know, we be friends?”
It is 1000000000000000000000% percent ok if you just go into my inbox can go. “Man, I am so fucking pissed off at fucking Larry.” And I’ll most likely respond with, “Oh shit! What did Larry do now?”
