…since the Saving Charlie Chaplin read, but in the next few days I’m going to post my full thoughts on that absolutely amazing and insane night.

Until then, I wanted to share this.

As a thank you to both the Black List crew and the cast, I had a dozen of these coffee mugs made up.

"Saving Charlie Chaplin" coffee mugs: 1/12

I sent them as gifts, along with a pound of Milwaukee’s Colectivo Coffee, to everyone involved. A total of twelve people, including one that I kept for myself. Now, each morning, I enjoy a cup of coffee out of Chaplin’s nonexistent face.

It’s quickly become my favorite mug.

More on Saving Charlie Chaplin soon,

"Writing Movies for Fun and Profit" by Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant.

Writing Movies for Fun and Profit by Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant.

My good friend Ryan gave me this book years ago, long before the Black List Live! read of Saving Charlie Chaplin that Lennon was a part of, but at that point I was desperately trying to take a break from reading “how to” books about screenwriting, and instead concentrate on figuring out my own method and style.

By then, I had had my fill of Robert McKee and saving the cat, and so I decided it was time to stop reading about how to do something, and just do it already.

I made a horrible mistake. I should’ve read this book sooner.

I’m only about 100 pages in, but it’s both a hilarious and (sometimes depressingly) accurate look at this insane industry, as told from the perspective of two guys who actually live it each and every day. If you’re an aspiring screenwriter—or even an established one—be sure to check it out.

Ryan was right,
