Into The Woods: A 5 Act Journey Into Story

March 7, 2014

Reading John Yorke’s Into The Woods: A 5 Act Journey Into Story. Yorke set up the BBC Writers’ Academy so has tons of experience. He then went on to Company Pictures I believe.
Only just started book and it’s reading really well so far. Appendices material in particular looks good.
It’s a library book so having to read it now while my 3 weeks are ticking but handy as I’m also re-writing 57 Images of My Father and ideas and more usefully questions are sparking up.
