“I like the way movies demonstrate how to have a tighter focus, how to cut all the extraneous trimmings of your story away to grab hold of the essential core of your story. If your novel were a movie, which parts would you keep and which would you throw away? The parts you would keep form the heart of your story. That heart is what you need to keep front and center as you write.”
