Danny Rubin, whose credits include GROUNDHOG DAY and HEAR NO EVIL, has a book out called How to Write Groundhog Day. Inasmuch as I love the film, I’m hoping the book is great. Here’s a helpful sample:
How to Write Groundhog Day: 10 Rules for Screenwriters – by Danny Rubin
Last summer another list of writing rules popped up, this one in a Sunday edition of The New York Times.
The comfort of rules can be very important to a writer’s motivation because telling them the truth (there are no rules and nobody knows anything) is for most people not useful and a little intimidating.
