I just started listening to John August's Scriptnotes podcast this week. I've been aware of it and meaning to tune in for a long time, but for some reason it's taken me this long to get around to it.

All I can say is, I wish I'd tuned in sooner. (Of course, old episodes are still available and I'll slowly work my way through them.) It's a fascinating and really fun podcast to listen to, with tons of great advice for screenwriters.

I read August's blog pretty regularly too, but the podcast is great because I can put it on my iPod or iPad and listen in the car on the way to/from work. I spend nearly ten hours in the car every week - that's a lot of time that's otherwise being wasted!

Writers, if you're not already listening, you need to start.
