David Mamet (supposedly) wrote this compelling note to tv writers for the now-defunct tv show "The Unit" (which I thought was a really good tv show.) If you like TV you will enjoy reading this. Gems such as:
"THE PROBLEM IS THIS: TO DIFFERENTIATE BETWEEN *DRAMA* AND NON-DRAMA. LET ME BREAK-IT-DOWN-NOW."And much much more. See "Letter From David Mamet".
"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."
