Ping, ping, LinkedIn notified there was a new topic for discussion.
I don’t really check many of those emails, but for some reason, this one I did. And now, after reading a blog post it advertised and quickly skimming through the content of the whole website, I’m extremely pleased I paid attention to the ping, ping sound. It help me discover a very interesting blog about screenwriting run by Tony Fanton.

Below is some info about Tony, I copied from his LinkedIn profile. Tony, if you are reading this, I hope you don’t mind ;)
Tony Folden has a fond appreciate for the finer television programs of the 80s, including such shows as Three’s Comapny, WKRP in Cincinnati, and M*A*S*H. These were the shows from which Tony received his inspiration. He’s also a huge fan of Tarantino, Wheddon, and Sorkin. By reading the scripts of these amazing writers, Tony learned the aluable art of dialogue. He considers himself to be what he refers to as a Dialogue Architect, building vibrant scenes suing scintillating verbal exchanges.
Tony grew up in a community so small it couldn’t even be called a town. He learned the value of a vivid imagination within those small surroundings, creating imaginary friends to keep him entertained. He later used that same imagination, and those friends, to create wonderful imaginary worlds to captivate others.
Tony began writing at an early age, but didn’t follow that passion until later in life. In his late 30s, he entered into the field of acting where he discovered the art of screenwriting. He then returned to school to obtain his degree in Creative Writing for Entertainment from Full Sail University.
Tony aspires to write for television, but he has not reserved himself to only TV. He plans to expand his talents to the Internet. Whether for a major network or an Internet platform such as Hulu, Tony wants to share his unique style of comedy and old-school sitcom flair with the world.
