save the cat? hell, maybe save your hero...

miss snark's first victim has shared a tidbit from save the cat written by the late and great blake snyder.

does your hero suffer from inactivitis? here are four tips from mr. snyder's book she shared:

1. Is your hero's goal clearly stated in the set-up?
2. Do clues of what to do next just come to your hero or does he seek them out?
3. Is your hero active or passive?
4. Do other characters tell your hero what to do or does he tell them?

think i'll get a copy of this book, i've heard great things about it from various authors.
must go back and read my work...
