This 45-page E book takes a comprehensive approach to the usual refrains on getting how you see your world and your slant on life to the page. By delving into and illustrating how the writer’s natural and unique Voice must influence all aspects of the process, it demonstrates how story tools such as Opening Image; Tone and Feel; Hooks; Character Construction; Allegories, Metaphors and Themes work together, complement each other, are part of the same world and why. We go in-depth here using actual examples from great screenplays, produced film and TV shows as well as Terry's own scripts to nail down exactly how the the individual writer and their natural unique Voice permeates all aspects of the well written narrative.

"Terry McFadden gently, efficiently, and often hilariously helps writers’ kick their laryngitis and find their voice by deconstructing the specific regions of a screenplay where we can let our own unique POV drive story and character in a way no one else can. He walks the walk by using his own writing as examples which helps communicate his methods without pretension. it is Terry’s own voice, layered with humor and honesty, that gives us the confidence to free ourselves, take a chance and let our voice fly!"
