This week's question: 

DcH, I'm thinking about writing like Aaron Sorkin so I can sell my first script.  What do you think?

Peter S. 

This week's Answer: 

"Sorkin'" Your Script

You really want to do that?  

Do what?  

That thing you just said.

The thing? 

Yeah.  The thing. 

Oh.  Right.  The thing.  The thing about writing like Aaron Sorkin.


So.  You think I should?

I think you should if you think you should.

I don't know if I should.

The whole world is going in the dumpster and people are being shot and little children are starving.

I needed to hear that.

We all do.  Why don't we walk for a long time down several hallways and continue this discussion.

I'm going to write like Aaron Sorkin.
