Is Your Script Stuck? John August's Writer Emergency Pack Is On Sale Now

Writer Emergency Pack by John August Is Now on Sale
If you're not one of the 5,714 Kickstarter backers and you missed your chance to get John August's Writer Emergency Pack late last year, your wait is finally over.

Writer Emergency Pack is now available for $19. Back in December, I was pleasantly surprised when my very own Writer Emergency Pack arrived less than a month after the end of the ridiculously successful Kickstarter campaign. And I'll admit, I've found myself flipping through the deck during a few early morning writing sessions on my latest script just to get into my creative space.

So, what is Writer Emergency Pack? Quite simply, John August has created a deck of cards full of intriguing ideas and helpful tips gleaned from his years as a professional screenwriter to help all of us find new ways to get unstuck when we are mired in our latest screenplay problem.

The deck includes 26 illustrated cards with quick suggestions to help writers get past their current obstacle.

Each illustrated card has a related detail card that has specific suggestions on the front and more tips to try on the back.

But wait! There's more!

You can't create a deck of cards and not create a game. That's why every Writer Emergency Pack comes with instructions on how to play "Cards Against Normality", a way to create a story with your friends using the cards as prompts.

Order your Writer Emergency Pack from and use discount code "nofilmschool" to get 10% off until May 1st.

Or you can order from Amazon and not get the discount because you don't like to save money. That's fine. Be that way. Whatever.

It's actually a couple dollars cheaper through Amazon despite the discount since you have to pay $5 shipping.

That's a relief, because I just received mine in the mail yesterday, only to discover a sale today.

Another good one is "The Writer's Book of Matches" it comes with a bunch of random one liners, situations, or other things that just get you thinking.
