Story, first read

I got my copy of Robert McKee's STORY through interlibrary loan today (one of the benefits of working on a university campus).

I only read the Introduction, but I already found two lines I love:

--"The archetypal story unearths a universally human experience, then wraps itself inside a unique, culture-specific expression."

--"Rather than agonizing over the odds [of publication], put your energies into achieving excellence."

This man knows what he's talking about.

Hi Susan:
He has all kinds of those little zingers. A very good book!

I'm VERY impressed so far. And keep marking things with post-its.
