“Thank you so much for your constructive critique of my scripts. If I were a neuron in your mind I would be lost on an adventure through the many pathways and connections firing the other cerebral lobes in your brain! You definitely have a sense of story and structure and imagination. Like constructing a beautiful gown, you sort through the raw material I give you and arrange the pieces to be sewn together to make something better than what was started. My story is like the basting and your critique is the finer stitching of the gown (the story). The facings (or subplots), the interfacings (underlining motives), each piece of fabric (the scenes), even after the top, middle and bottom sections are finished (Acts I, II and III) you show me how to assemble it all to make the story even better!” –J.A. Brown
“Linda Seger is a wealth of knowledge. It’s no wonder many of the pros look to her for help.” — Joni Ravenna
“The session with you yesterday was extraordinarily helpful and set me in the right direction. Thank you! You are so very good at what you do and glad you continue to share your knowledge with all of us “struggling” writers!” — M. N., Screenwriter
“I just finished my first full read through this afternoon. I must say, your thoughts and insight are hitting home more deeply than I have words to express. I feel thrilled, humbled, encouraged, and challenged to make the best story possible!” — Amrish Sengupta
“I am thrilled by the analysis and the opportunities indicated to improve the script. Thanks for sharing your skill and knowledge with us on this project. We highly value your comments and insights. Marvelous. Thank you. It feels to me like we are at a banquet and see food we haven’t eaten before and now trying to figure out the best way to create the best dining experience through all of your guidance. My colleague John says it feels like we are on the bridge of a ship in dangerous waters and you have shown us a dozen or more lighthouses that will help navigation.” —Professor Francesco Sofo, PhD, FAHRI, University of Canberra, ACT, 2601Dear Dr. Linda Seger,
“The other day, I came across your book Making A Good Script Great at my local bookstore and, after reading it in a single sitting, I immediately wanted to seek you out and express my appreciation for your excellent commentary on the process of writing (and rewriting) a screenplay. I’ve taken many writing classes throughout my life and even went to film school to learn more about storytelling through screenwriting. However, I’ve never read such a concise and thorough approach to the craft, with various words of wisdom that I’ve never come across in all my years of schooling. What I found particularly significant was your tip on using subplot to drive home the theme of the story while using the main plot to drive the story forward to its conclusion. Not a single class that I’ve taken, including the screenwriting classes I took in film school, even mentioned this approach (if you can believe that), and I found your insights on this to be incredibly helpful to me while prepping to write my latest feature screenplay. Being exposed to your insights has made me feel like I now have the potential to become a better screenwriter, and I just wanted to express my gratitude that you were generous enough to share them with anybody crazy enough to give it a shot. Thank you.” — James Sadler, script reader, screenwriter, & filmmaker Clovis, CA
