Writing Advice from Twilight’s Melissa Rosenberg

Melissa Rosenberg is the screenwriter of Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse and other vampire movies you’ve never heard of (yeah, right).  Lest you think that her lofty position exempts her from getting scathing feedback on her work (it doesn’t) or has granted her a bullet-proof ego (it hasn’t), check out her Golden Rules of Screenwriting.  In the latest issue of MovieMaker Magazine, Ms. Rosenberg hammers out the best list of writing advice you’re likely to find anywhere, regardless of the medium you write in:

My favorite piece of advice?  “Don’t give up. You’re going to get kicked in the teeth. A lot. Learn to take a hit, then pick yourself up off the floor. Resilience is the true key to success.”

True that!
