Writerly Thoughts and Pixar

It is late and I have to be up early tomorrow. I also won’t be able to post for the next 2 weeks because I will have limited access to a computer and no time. I am going to be a camp counselor for high school and middle school students. Tons of fun but not much down time. So I wanted to put this out there before I go.

This is another Tumblr find. I did not make it myself. It’s Pixar’s Rules of Storytelling via Legos. Some of them are basic story telling/writing “rules” and some are not. But in my opinion they are still important, and everything is cooler with Legos!

Also I’m kind of obsessed with Pixar. That might be my inner five year old letting itself loose but they really do tell amazing stories. I mean Wall-E and Up, both are love stories – one was told using something like four words (Wall-E, Eeeva, directive, plant, woah – am I missing any?) and one was told in eight minutes without any dialogue. (Up is one of the more emotional movies I have watched lately, and not just because of the beginning sequence). Honestly if I could draw (which I can’t) I think I would hang out in the Pixar’s offices all day and just be a fly on the wall. Or sit in on meetings, and hang out and go to lunch with the people that work there because I bet they are pretty awesome!
