“Films are a visual medium, and for many screenwriters, so is the writing process. To be able to step back and actually SEE how close or far apart your fights and speeches are from each other. To WATCH a relationship or crime blooming over time, it’s a perspective you don’t get when you only see the page you’re on. And with all the ways to stack decks and organize, it’s like Minecraft for story: Build it, break it, change your mind, knock it down, build again. Just watch out for Creepers.”
