David Mamet’s Editorial Notes To Writers of “The Unit”

[Written, as one might hope, in all-caps, laced with profanity, and peppered with utter contempt for network executives][link]. Delicious, and mostly good advice. A sample:

>ANY TIME ANY CHARACTER IS SAYING TO ANOTHER “AS YOU KNOW”, THAT IS, TELLING ANOTHER CHARACTER WHAT YOU, THE WRITER, NEED THE AUDIENCE TO KNOW, THE SCENE IS A CROCK OF SHIT.

Amen.
