My professor of scripts, story and character is Rod Serling.

After reading through a few lame and pretentious blogs which are full of absolute gibberish and bullshit,  I’ll write about Rod Serling one of the few american masters of storytelling.  

Rod Serling won 6 Emmy awards for writing in the “golden age” of TV.  No other writer has accomplished this.  The Twilight Zone has become part of the social consciousness.  This show is over 50 years old yet it still popular and the stories have stood the test of time.  Serling and the Twilight Zone have achieved a sense of immortality.

If you want to be successful take a page from one who was successful instead of the usual, the mediocre.  You will learn little from those who’ve accomplished nothing.

As an artist I pour my soul onto the canvas, as a writer I pour my soul onto the page.  Serling says that he “goes to the typewriter and he bleeds”.  Once you have that level of commitment,  I found my writing flowed.

Later in life Serling taught college at Ithaca and 16 videos exist of him teaching various aspects of characters, story, motivation, so I have posted these at dailymotion for all to watch and learn.  If you watch the videos and absorb them, your writing will get better without a doubt.
