A Million Miles in a Thousand Years: What I Learned While Editing My Life
"It's a good tool to introduce people to the concepts of story. It forces them to see how a protagonist works through their own eyes. Great for beginners and a great reminder for those who get lost in years of theory." - Anthony Grieco, The Pocket Screenwriting Guide
Full of beautiful, heart-wrenching, and hilarious stories, A Million Miles in a Thousand Years details one man's opportunity to edit his life as if her were a character in a movie.
Years after writing his best-selling memoir, Donald Miller went into a funk and spent months sleeping in and avoiding his publisher. One story had ended, and Don was unsure how to start another.
But he gets rescued by two movie producers who want to make a movie based on his memoir. When they start fictionalizing Don's life for film--changing a meandering memoir into a structured narrative--the real-life Don starts a journey to edit his actual life into a better story. A Million Miles in a Thousand Years details that journey and challenges readers to reconsider what they strive for in life. It shows how to get a second chance at life the first time around.
