I am in love with Pixar. If it´s one company I look to as my heroes, they are it. Therefor, I got pretty excited when I found the post «Pixar’s 22 Rules of Storytelling» by Aerogramme Writers’ Studio.
Here´s some of my fav. points. You should check out the others at their site.
1. You admire a character for trying more than for their successes.
11. Putting it on paper lets you start fixing it. If it stays in your head, a perfect idea, you’ll never share it with anyone.
17. No work is ever wasted. If it’s not working, let go and move on – it’ll come back around to be useful later.
