Pixar's 22 Rules to Phenomenal Storytelling


  1. Hiya, I read that you've taken Dean's lecture on Lester Dent's plot formula, would you mind sharing your thoughts on it? Is it worth the money even if one is familiar with the plot formula?

  2. Hi Tanja

    Well I was familiar with the plot formula before I saw the lecture and I found it interesting and useful. It's always useful to listen to a pro giving his opinion on these things. Dean breaks it all down and discusses every aspect of the formula.

    That said, I'm reticent in recommending things like this because everyone's mileage may vary.

    so I will simply say that it was a good buy for me. :)

  3. I hear you. I've just listened to his Writers Block lecture and found it very useful. Thanks for your thoughts and I guess I'll be signing up for the plot formula lecture after christmas :D

  4. Hey man, I just want to thank you for writing this blog.

    After having read all of your postings, I must say that the information you put out is invaluable for aspiring writers (myself included).

    So thanks again, and have a great, productive 2014!


  5. Thanks, Andre. That's very kind of you.
