The #Writer’s Craft: Word Counts, Story Length & Story Structure

(Beth Turnage Blog)  I’ve written several posts on Quora on writing and thought I’d curate some here.

Comment on A new “Splash.” by Beth Turnage

I saw a trailer for the Magnificent Seven in the theater this weekend. It looked okay, but trailers can be deceptive. I agree that perhaps Hollywood should sometimes leave well enough alone but then there are other movies that beg for a better remake. Dune is one such story. How I longed for the SyFy channel version with the original movie’s cast. Of course that could never happen.

On the other hand there is plenty of new material that would suitable movie material, but I guess its easier to dig among the dusty piles of old movie concepts than to develop new ones. 🙂
