Vonnegut For Screenwriters


Living the Romantic Comedy:

"Tucked into the grab-bag collection of loose ends that is Bagombo Snuff Box: Uncollected Short Fiction, you will find eight rules for writing a short story. Shortly after Vonnegut's passing, I passed these out to a classroom full of screenwriters, because it seemed to me that the rules applied to the crafting of screenplays as well."

The Onion AV:

"15 Things Kurt Vonnegut Said Better Than Anyone Else Ever Has Or Will."

The Pen is Mightier than the Spork:

"Kurt Vonnegut died today, aged 84. I'm really upset about that. Somehow I hoped he'd live forever."
