Allegra Houston’s Writers Tip
For the aspiring authors out there, here’s a writers tip from Allegra Houston, author of ‘Say My Name’.
Writing screenplays teaches you a lot about structure, and about getting meaning into the story that’s not spelled out on the page. I think that’s a very useful discipline for all storytellers. I also love ten-minute writing exercises. They don’t give you enough time to think: it’s improv for writers. And that’s where the sparks, the energy, the originality, come from.
