Good Advice For Writers

Here’s a great quote from Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino. It’s wonderful advice for any writer, beginner or seasoned (I’m looking at you, Hollywood screenwriters).

Audiences are as smart as you’ll allow them to be. You know, if you write dumb, then, you know, you’re just saying that the audience can’t handle it, which is, in my mind, crazy. Audiences like good material; they like smart material.

Exactly right. By the way, if you want to see a well-done film that deserved an Oscar nomination for 2018, check out Monsters and Men. The trailer is below.
