      Ennis Del Mar: If you can't fix it, Jack, you gotta stand it. Jack Twist: "you're too much for me, Ennis, you son of a whoreson bitch.. (pauses) I wish I knew how to quit you..". Inciting Event: The Witch tells the Baker and his Wife that she will break the spell on the Baker and give them a child if they can gather four items (a cow, a shoe, yellow hair, and a red hood) within three nights.

Consider the number of characters in your story, time frames, what should constitute the core story and which parts should comprise the supporting back story. Someone else can read the same book and picture the same exact character differently as you or the author.

You get insight into a character’s internal monologue. In a book, you can see a character’s thoughts etched clearly on the page. In a movie, it isn’t that simple; you have to be able to decipher How I Broke into the Movies and You Can Too book the character thinks through.

Do I need permission to write a sequel to a famous book or can I just write and sell it. For any books that fall under copyright protection you need permission from the copyright holder.

The holder is typically the author, the author’s family, or the book publisher. Without obtaining the rights, you cannot sell/publish a sequel. By far, one of the biggest reasons to read books after watching the movies all boils down to comparison.

While I am not huge on comparing books to movies (because books always seem to win!), you can compare the author's descriptions, you can see how well the movie did in really bringing the book to life and you can note all of the small, subtle things that didn’t make it into the movie.

Caroline Kepnes is from Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Her first novel You was translated into nineteen languages, shortlisted for a CWA New Blood Award, and made into a TV series airing on Lifetime.

Her second novel Hidden Bodies is a sequel that Booklist describes as “the love child of Holden Caulfield and Patrick Bateman.” Her most recent novel is Providence. Adapting a book into a film is hard, which is why some filmmakers just say “Forget it,” and make their own movie while paying lip service to the source material.

Sometimes this cavalier attitude leads to some surprisingly amazing films. Let’s check out 10 of these films that have almost nothing in common with the. And, of course, it's nice to know a story before you see a movie.

This year, plenty of movies based on books have hit the big (and small) screen. Here are the year's best—just read the books. There’s been three movies about our favorite barbarian to date. The first two, Conan the Barbarian released inand Conan the Destroyer released instarred non other than Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The third movie, also title Conan the Barbarian, came out in and featured Jason Momoa as are all, I’m sure you’ll agree, quite different movies. When people hear that an author’s book is being made into a film, they seem to think the writer is super involved in every decision along the way—the casting, the script, the location, everything.

If the book is too difficult for your level of English, watching the movie can let you enjoy the story and understand it better. You can watch the movie to see how well you understood a book.

Since many classics are old, they use some words you might not know. Watching the movie can show you how to use and pronounce these words. The perceived reality is that: It's impossible to break into the film and TV business. And as I write in my new book, that misperception got me mad.

Really mad. Howard Beale in Network mad, because that's just not true. Just the opposite. The good news is that it has never been easier to make movies and TV shows and break into the business. At a very basic level, a movie can cut straight to the story because it can show the setting as the story goes along, where a book will have to spend some time establishing/ describing the characters and the setting.

Alright, so there’s a moment in the movies in which Harry drools while trying to catch Cho’s eye, but for the most part, Harry didn’t do too badly with the ladies on screen.

During Order of the Phoenix (), Cho and Harry got together pretty seamlessly, and broke up when Harry suspected Cho of betraying Dumbledore’s Army.

For fun (and fluency), list all the books that you can think of that have been made into movies. Grab these Book vs. Movie Question Cards. Fun Fact: Roald Dahl, author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, hated the movie version of his book so much that he refused to allow the studio to make a sequel.

I wrote this book for the average person who has a job, makes a living and still can’t seem to get ahead.
