"Secrets divulged by a scribe behind eminent lines"

The Australian:

" "Craft can be learned," ( MichaelHauge) says. "I think everyone has talent. Some seem to instinctively have an easier time understanding the principles of story in general, and particularly the principles of film storytelling."

Other people find it more difficult, he adds, because they may have been reared on other kinds of story or think in other terms.

"Beyond that, it's craft," he says. "And if you look at what the successful screenwriters have in common, the No.1 thing they have is just tenacity. It's just that they stuck with it, past rejection after rejection and draft after draft, until they got it together." "
