This was a great article and I plan to buy and read the longer eBook.
I really appreciate this article.
Amongst my writing friends I've always kept an eye out for anyone who I feel would be a good fit with my writing style.
Recently I've decided that I'm too selfish to write with someone else and what I'm really looking for is someone to keep me focused/working on the script.
My current solution is my mom. As funny as it sounds, whenever I'm visiting my parents, my mom enjoys helping me with my writing. This is as simple as asking questions about thing she doesn't understand and forcing me to explain all aspects of the story to her, as she isn't well-versed in storytelling or story format. It's been a blessing and I've been able to plot my story far more efficiently.
The other great thing is that she is a very good representative of the general public, not to insult her, but her lack of knowledge when it comes to film techniques and tropes helps me to make sure that I'm not overlooking anything just because "I know what I'm doing."
What does this mean? Well maybe the wife, boyfriend, flat mate...that's always been "interested" in your projects might be a good person to bounce ideas off. I've found it to be groundbreaking in my process.
Thanks for your response!

I tend to stick strickly to boxers. The free-er the better.
Ah, it appears the eBook is free, even better.
