Ready! Action! Write! A student's writing skill is the single best predictor of success in the first year of college - better than math, vocabulary, grammar, or reading prowess. Unfortunately, while high schools teach students the mechanics of writing, they don't address issues such as getting unstuck, writing a first draft, brainstorming, finding the thesis that's hiding in an essay, soliciting useful feedback, or telling a story in pictures. This unique guide does, by capitalizing on what students know a lot about: the movies. Students read inside stories about their favorite films online. They watch behind-the-scenes bonus material on DVDs. They know how films work. What they don't know is that the writing and filmmaking processes are remarkably similar. In this book, they'll learn to shift their focus from word counts to process as they move from pre-production, preparing to write, "shooting" their first draft in the production phase, and then running their results through post-production to perfect their work.

Blasting clichéd career advice, the contrarian pundit and creator of Dilbert recounts the humorous ups and downs of his career, revealing the outsized role of luck in our lives and how best to play the system. Scott Adams has likely failed at more things than anyone you’ve ever met or anyone you’ve even heard of. So how did he go from hapless office worker and serial failure to the creator of Dilbert, one of the world’s most famous syndicated comic strips, in just a few years? In How to Fail at Almost Everything and Still Win Big, Adams shares the game plan he’s followed since he was a teen: invite failure in, embrace it, then pick its pocket. No career guide can offer advice that works for everyone. As Adams explains, your best bet is to study the ways of others who made it big and try to glean some tricks and strategies that make sense for you. Adams pulls back the covers on his own unusual life and shares how he turned one failure after another—including his corporate career, his inventions, his investments, and his two restaurants—into something good and lasting. There’s a lot to learn from his personal story, and a lot of entertainment along the way. Adams discovered some unlikely truths that helped to propel him forward. For instance: • Goals are for losers. Systems are for winners. • “Passion” is bull. What you need is personal energy. • A combination of mediocre skills can make you surprisingly valuable. • You can manage your odds in a way that makes you look lucky to others. Adams hopes you can laugh at his failures while discovering some unique and helpful ideas on your own path to personal victory. As he writes: “This is a story of one person’s unlikely success within the context of scores of embarrassing failures. Was my eventual success primarily a result of talent, luck, hard work, or an accidental just-right balance of each? All I know for sure is that I pursued a conscious strategy of managing my opportunities in a way that would make it easier for luck to find me.”
