Time For My Midterm.

I want to become a professor, write a terrible book that no one wants, then force my students to buy it for 80 bucks each.

The complete antithesis of my professorial style is Aaron Sorkin. He’s my favorite writer, and right now my favorite teacher. I’m halfway through his online master class, and so far it’s incredible.

Aaron is thoughtful and brilliant and really loves writing, and he shares everything he’s learned about story and characters. He made the bold promise that at the end of this class, everyone who takes it will become an excellent screenwriter.

It’ll be interesting to dive back into writing my sitcom, and see how my skills have progressed from my typo-laden, limerick style to somewhat tolerable. Can’t wait.
