Sad news: Screenwriter, best selling author, and all-around good guy Blake Snyder passed away this afternoon in Los Angeles.

Blake was a good friend, and one of the most generous, talented, and gracious souls ever to walk the earth--the man was incapable of being in a foul mood. He gave his all as a mentor/screenwriting guru, and celebrated our triumphs as if they were his own. In a way they were. I wouldn't be half the writer I am without Blake's guidance. Blake was always accessible; what other author posts his personal e-mail address in his book?

This is a sad evening in the screenwriting world.

You may pay your respects on Blake's FaceBook page or on his website at Blake Snyder
