    I think about story structure a lot, and the Save the Cat books offer great perspective on storytelling from another angle the Hollywood movie This book fills in some gaps left by the first book in the series, and it expands on other parts I especially appreciated the breakdown of the five point finale since the first book was pretty loose on the elements of a typical finale Also, the last chapter, about Discipline, focus, and positive energy is inspiring It motivates me to sit my butt I think about story structure a lot, and the Save the Cat books offer great perspective on storytelling from another angle the Hollywood movie This book fills in some gaps left by the first book in the series, and it expands on other parts I especially appreciated the breakdown of the five point finale since the first book was pretty loose on the elements of a typical finale Also, the last chapter, about Discipline, focus, and positive energy is...

    I think if you read Save the Cat, you should read Save the Cat Strikes Back A lot of great material in here expanding on concepts from the first book A portion of the book is screenwriting specific As a fiction writer, I skimmed through those portions.

  4. Quentin Ellis says:

    This is an excellent follow up to the first Save the Cat book, and fills in a lot of the blanks Snyder s model of three act structure is the most cogent I have yet found His writing is also highly entertaining, making this an easy read and re read.

  5. Johannes Lilover says:

    Quite pointless, liked the first one in the series but this one just has a lot of old ideas But it can be helpful if you already had a script Idk I just couldn t finish it

    If you are working toward a career as a spec screenwriter, this is really the book where Blake fulfills his promise and delivers a second helping of detail on how to shape yourself in that industry This is principally an extension of the Hollywood how to portions of his original STC It was not...

  9. Stephanie says:

    Lotsuseful stuff in here mostly directed at screenwriters with a good portion of the book directed at screenwriters and giving them specific career advice , but as with the first book, many of the rules are just as applicable to fiction writers.

    This book expands on and fills the gaps the first Save the Cat title Both are of great value in helping a writer to get to grips with making their story work in all its elements, whether it s a screenplay or a novel I ve rushed through this one a bit, but highlighted the things I need to keep track of, and hopefully between books one and two I ll make better progress on the book I ve been writing spasmodically over a year and have got stuck onthan once This second book has material in t This book expands on and fills the gaps the first Save the Cat title Both are of great value in helping a writer to get to grips with making their story work in all its elements, whether it s a screenplay or a novel I ve rushed through this one a bit, but highlighted the things I need to keep track of, and hopefully between books one and two I ll make better pr...
