Mr. Sawyer has taught creative writing at UCLA Extension, and has lectured
extensively on screenwriting and fiction writing at various universities and
Mr. Sawyer knows storytelling! Here's what he says about Plotting:
"Any student of fiction is aware that there are no new stories or plots;
they were all used up by the time Shakespeare packed it in. But the way each
writer views the world - through his or her own unique filters - the individual
spin we put on these tried and true stories is what makes them our own, whether
we're turning Cinderella into My Fair Lady or Pretty Woman, translating Pagliacci
into an episode of Murder, She Wrote, or folding The Boy Who Cried 'Wolf' into a
Seinfeld episode. That's what PLOTS UNLIMITED [now upgraded to the max in STORYBASE] is all about."
