- "First thing I noticed was that when I got to the script writing part it went really fast because of all the work and revision I'd done in the steps leading up to it. Second thing I noticed was that the quality of the writing was a lot better. One of the two scripts I wrote with your approach is probably the best thing I've ever written. The other is much better than I expected it to be. So your approach has really worked for me and improved my writing. Thanks!" - Peter Tenenbaum
