Go Into The Story | The craft of screenwriting, movies, Hollywood, and the creative life Go Into The Story | The craft of screenwriting, movies, Hollywood, and the creative life The Black List is a pretty exclusive club, especially so for those writers who manage to land two scripts on the List in a single year.

The Ultimate Guide to Writing Better Than You Normally Do. Writing is a muscle. Smaller than a hamstring and slightly bigger than a bicep, and it needs to be exercised to get stronger. Think of your words as reps, your paragraphs as sets, your pages as daily workouts. Think of your laptop as a machine like the one at the gym where you open and close your inner thighs in front of everyone, exposing both your insecurities and your genitals.

A versus An Summary: This short handout deals with which article to use before a noun -- "a" or "an."
