The Left-Handed, Ex-Boxer Communist

daily journal Apr 4, 2020
Howard suggested, he could also be an ex-boxer, a left-handed ex-boxer! So he’s a Communist and an ex-boxer and he’s left-handed? I kept asking. And Howard thought that was great. - Save the Cat by Blake Snyder

Save the Cat, my favorite book on writing, has a good point. When you overcomplicate a character, it just becomes too much, and the audience loses interest.

Lately I've been feeling like the left-handed, ex-boxer Communist. I can barely keep up with my own hobbies, and I think I'd benefit from simplifying my life a lot right now.
