I have been tasked with the assignment to write the book on Light Entertainment. This is a handbook or an instruction manual for yourself. I am to write the book on how to produce entertainment that emits light. This is the seed bed that needs to be prepared before I can begin to plant seeds. That makes sense. I have been looking at the grounds that I prepared in my garden for planting for the last 5 months, knowing that there was a parallel to how I am to approach entertainment production. Yet I didn’t know what the seed bed was. Now I do.
I need to define what makes entertainment entertaining. I need to understand the nuances of humor, drama, conflict, resolution.
When this book is completed, it will mean nothing to anyone until someone can demonstrate how to use the book in a practical manner. The book will be meaningless unless I can prove that the principles are true through actual production. So the next step after the book will be the proof of concept.
I have a lot to learn.
How much time do I have to write the book? As little time as possible.
