Twitter Jail!

November 11th, 2012 by

So I guess I posted too many Tweets in tonight’s scriptchat session. But they can’t take my blog away from me!

Those of you who had questions from tonight, but I couldn’t answer, please post them here and I’ll do my best to respond.

UPDATE: It’s weird because it says you are allowed 1000 Tweets per day and I am nowhere near that, but I keep getting Error 403 which suggests that, yes, I am in Twitter jail.

Anyhow thanks to the Jeannie and all the fine Scriptchat folks. As I say, happy to continue the discussion here in comments.

    Great chat tonight, Scott. Thank you so much.

  2. Thanks for a great chat tonight, Scott. Much to think on.

  3. Haha, quite a convenient stop as your last tweet was:

    “So a maze? Yes, in a way. Each Protagonist has their own destiny which can be defined by… #scriptchat”

    I’m the one whom asked about the maze and i’d love to see the rest of the answer :)

    1. Scott says:

      Each Protagonist has their own destiny which can be defined by the confluence of their Want [Conscious Goal] and Need [Unconscious Goal].

      Jung asserted that which is unconscious yearns to become conscious. So, too, characters in Disunity whose Need yearns to become manifest. That is what feeds and empowers their metamorphosis, combined with the impact and influence of characters and events in the External World.

      So when we look at The Silence of the Lambs, it is Clarice’s destiny to meet Lecter, to have him mentor her into her own subconscious and repressed consciousness, to save Catherine Martin and to kill Buffalo Bill.

      How is that like a maze? A maze has a beginning and end, and generally there is one path to get from here to there. That is a metaphor for a character’s destiny. However their EXPERIENCE of the process of getting from here to there feels confusing, frustrating, filled with twists, turns, and dead ends. In a story, that’s the Plotline.

      So a maze is an interesting metaphor for a Protagonist’s physical and psychological journey.

      1. Thanks, Scott. Loved to see how you used Jung here. My reasoning is much poorer, as i believe that as a writer i must know my characters and my environment so well, to the point that writing is like an experiment.
