Dean Haspiel

12:16pm: RIP Joe Stockdale.
RIP Joe Stockdale. Your class in Dramatic Structure at SUNY Purchase in the late 1980's taught me the greatest lesson in writing stories. What does a character want? What did Willy Loman want in "Death of a Salesman?" No one knew the answer until you showed us how to find it. Willy Loman wanted to be "well-liked" and that dictated his choices and behavior. It was written in the script. Write what you want. And, I have, ever since.
