Breaking the Story with Tim Minear. This issue of Creative Screenwriting magazine has articles involving former verse writers, Tim Minear and Shawn Ryan. If you're interested in how ideas are created behind the scenes and how writers minds work, this is an excellent read.
Tim takes us to class in "Breaking the Story", which he did at the last Expo in Nov but which he's now put in writing for the rest of us to learn from and understand. Then he sheds light on "Metaphors and Monsters: Reinventing Angel and The Inside". There's also an article on Shawn Ryan's new show "The Unit".
"Breaking the story is figuring out what the story is. It's about specificity, building it brick by brick, and coming up with every detail you need."
