Save the Cat & Improve Your Writing

Save the Cat by Blake Snyder

Save the Cat by Blake Snyder, a #1 bestseller for 15 years, is a worldwide must-read for screenwriters, but I recommend it for all types of storytellers. The more exposure writers have to the best storytelling teachers, the better writers we become. 

The producer of several hits including The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3, Hope Springs, The Pursuit of Happyness, Antwone Fisher, and the Weather Man, Blake Snyder considers Save the Cat: "One of the most comprehensive and insightful how-to's out there. Save the Cat! is a must-read for both the novice and the professional screenwriter."

“Want to know how to be a successful writer in Hollywood? The answers are here. Blake Snyder has written an insider's book that's informative ― and funny, too.” – David Hoberman, Producer, Muppets Most Wanted (2014), The Muppets, The Shaggy Dog , Raising Helen, Walking Tall, Monk (TV)

Save the Cat is a "fast, funny and candid" peek into the movie business. The book shows enough storytelling secrets to benefit screenwriters, novelists, those who write short story fiction, and nonfiction writers. 

"You'd have to look far and wide to find a better book to help you achieve your goals," said Screentalk Magazine. "Quite simply one of the most practical guides to writing mainstream spec scripts on the market"
