    Plot does not drive characters. Characters drive plot. Characters want, fear, need, feel, do shit, say shit, act, react. This creates plot.

    Writers think, dream, scream, flail, procrastinate, market, edit, email, caffeinate, plot, scheme, but above all else?

    MY WRITING PROCESS:

    a) Dunk face in coffee.

    CNN doesn't show news. MTV doesn't play music. History has no history. Food Network actually still shows food occasionally, so there's that.
