ReferenceforWriters is a writing advice, tips, help, and inspiration blog. It has existed for over a year now, a fact I’m truly thrilled about.
I aim to keep this blog ad-free and available at no cost for my followers. I don’t get paid for running this blog nor for the traffic it receives. The only thing I ask in return is help in continuing to make it even better than it already is. I’m always looking for ways to improve it, so never hesitate to suggest anything you could have in mind.
Disclaimer: some posts might be considered triggering for gore and blood (reblogged for medical research purposes), posts on abuse, racism, sexism, and the like, also for research. I tag accordingly, but keep in mind before following anyway.
A reader by the name of profound_whatever posted this really cool infographic on reddit a few days ago. Basically, it’s a “snazzy” breakdown of the 500 spec scripts they’ve read for various production companies. While I wouldn’t read too much into some of the stats, the breakdown of recurring problems is a handy checklist to keep nearby when rewriting. - screamwriter
