Blake Snyder 1957-2009

Blake Snyder, screenwriter, producer and author of the Save the Cat! series of books on screenwriting has died at the age of 51.

He was blogging up to the day before he died. His final post begins:
I love writers. And I especially enjoy helping young writers who email with the big question: When? When will I sell my first script? When will I “get on the boards”? My patient reply is always the same: Don’t worry about that right now. Have fun! The most important thing to do is to love what you’re doing. That way, getting better at it isn’t a struggle, it’s a pleasure.
