STUFF FOR STORYTELLERS

Here are some of the products I use and recommend for those in the storytelling world. Just click on the graphic to go to their sites.

Scrivener: Get your words out.

This is perhaps my favorite software of all time.

I use Scrivener for developiing stories, planning courses, writing screenplays ... just about everything.

It only costs fifty bucks and I find it indispensable in my work.

NOTE: I am an affiliate of Literature and Latte.


InkTip


InkTip is a website for screenwriters. If you already have an agent or know a whole bunch of people in the industry, you might not need InkTip. But if you want to make contact with agents, managers, and producers, then a service like InkTip can prove beneficial.

You post your screenplay on the site (for a fee) and you can subscribe to their newsletter (another fee) in which they present requests by producers looking for scripts. They vet their industry participants which I appreciate.

I've optioned several scripts through their site and been able to work with several producers and managers.

NOTE: I am not an affiliate of InkTip, just a long time subscriber.

Storytelling

"Storytelling is the most powerful way to put ideas into the world."
Robert McKee

"My style is colloquial storytelling. It's the way we tell stories to one another -- it's not writerly, it's not overdone."
James Patterson

"Storytelling is about two things; it's about character and plot."
George Lucas

"Every story you tell is your own story."
Joseph Campbell
