Where is exercise eight?

Lets see….exercises one through seven are done. But yet, here I am at chapter eight and, what’s this? There isn’t an exercise at the end?

The name of the chapter is Of Time and Memory. I’m not going to summarize it. If you want to know, buy The Screenwriters Workbook and read it yourself. Or at least get it from the library.

My point is there isn’t an exercise for this chapter. Which is going to make things a bit odd. Because…well, so far chapter to exercises has been a one to one relationship. You want to see the exercise for chapter four? Check out exercise four. Chapter five? Exercise five. You get the deal.

But now that whole rhythm is shot to hell. What to do? Oh, what to do?

Actually, the answer was pretty simple. I decided to just edit the categories so that instead of being titled Exercise One, Exercise Two they’re going to say Chapter One Exercise, Chapter Two Exercise, etc. This is probably easier for the reader to understand anyway, so if they wanted to follow along in their own book it’s much simpler to know specifically what chapter each exercise relates to.

So there has been a bit of a re-org, but hopefully it isn’t too confusing. Either way, chapter eight is pretty short. Chapter nine is when I’m going to actually start writing the new screenplay. It should be interesting to see how this all pans out.
