Aline Brosh McKenna joins John and Craig for a conversation about what writers mean by a “voice,” and how it develops.
For some screenwriters, their voice develops long before their craft, leading people to label them as “promising” even though the scripts themselves are a mess. Other writers get all the technical stuff right from the start, but have a hard time finding something distinctive about how they write.
From there, we segue into a look at three new Three Page Challenges, easily our most contentious session yet, with wildly split opinions.
All this and Craig’s confession in the new episode of Scriptnotes.
