It’s funny, but if you try to construct “The Way of the Dodo” in Japanese, in the same fashion as the Way of the Warrior (bushi-do) and the Way of the Sword (ken-do) you get dodo-do.

Which is a joke on par with The Way of Electronic Warrior (ninten-do) or maybe Sumomomomomomo and similarly silly, but closely related to what I want to say today.

You see, it started when I stumbled onto “Save the Cat”, which is a book on screenwriting just as apparently influential as it is misleading in terms of writing for other purposes…

But first things first.
