Over the years, I have interviewed over 40 Black List screenwriters. This month, I am running a series featuring one topic per week related to the craft of writing.

Last week: How do you develop your characters?

Black List writers on the craft: Characters (Part 1) — Real people

Black List writers on the craft: Characters (Part 2) — Brainstorming and asking questions

Black List writers on the craft: Characters (Part 3) — Biography

Black List writers on the craft: Characters (Part 4) — Scene-writing

Black List writers on the craft: Characters (Part 5) — Insider tips

Perhaps the biggest tip: Get curious about your characters.

In my opinion, the Black List is the most important brand related to screenwriters and screenwriting in Hollywood. Therefore it makes sense we should study the creative processes of writers who make the list. More insight and inspiration coming next week.
