  1. Hitchcock is quoted as saying “Drama is life with the dull bits cut out.” So yes, please cut the boring bits. no one wants boring.

    Rather than true or false, perhaps the more accurate assessment should be, is the story believable? If you base a good story on truth you could wipe out the Sci-Fi and Fantasy genres. Every story requires the listener/viewer/reader to engage in a certain amount of suspended disbelief. But if the story goes too far, if it does not have a core of believability, then the story fails.

  2. eh, it’s one of those super broad quotes I could argue either side on. I think the grey area is the word boring. What is boring?
    To my nine year old my 5 and 6 color hair is boring, because it’s been that way for years.
    To someone seeing it for the first time – they love it.
