Robert McKee — Dialogue























The particularly sharp among you may have noticed that I haven't written a lot about Robert McKee on this blog. The only reason for that is that he hasn't done much lately (that I know of) but I like his book Story very much, and he is second on my recommended reading list, after Truby.

(That list is on the right hand side here somewhere... down... down... keep scrolling... that's it).

Today I saw this article about, and interview with, him — because he has a new book out.

“Becoming a writer … it’s going to cost you time,” McKee said, looking out over the room of about 150 students, a diverse mix of ages and races. “It’s going to  cost you money. It’s going to cost you people.”

Enjoy.

And maybe at some point I'll review it.
