Reading for My Future

This is the book I'm currently reading. It is a combo of memoir and biography as Mr. Buford relates his cooking (mis)adventures and also tells you Mario Batali's life story. But this is not the book about my future. I love cooking, don't misunderstand. In fact, I made granola yesterday then made crunchy banana muffins with said granola, both from the The Barefoot Contessa Cookbook, which I bought the other day. Tonight we are having salmon for dinner. But I digress. My future, my new brilliant career -- writing and directing. I am currently reading Save The Cat! The Last Book on Screenwriting You'll Ever Need by Blake Snyder. I am two sections in and already my mind is spinning about all the things I need to do with my scripts. Waiting their turns are also: My First Movie: Twenty Celebrated Directors Talk about Their First Film by Stephen Lowenstein and Breaking In: How 20 Movie Directors Got Their First Start by Nicholas Jarecki. My new favorite store is Writers Store. Inspiring books fill the shelves and they have lectures and classes about writing. I will become a regular.
