Kristine Kathryn Rusch (and many other self-publishing gurus) found important lessons for all writers in the #DisneyMustPay saga.
And writer and editor Milo Todd has often turned to the creative giant when teaching the craft of storytelling, too.
Recently, though, Todd realized even more crucial truths for authors thanks to Disney.
He discovered a bootleg version of a documentary on the years and trials it took to produce The Emperor’s New Groove.
The documentary, The Sweatbox, premiered at festivals in 2002, after which Disney purchased the rights to it and tucked it away in a vault.
Hence why Todd watched a bootleg version — but don’t worry, he shares the key points from it rather than assigning you to track it down.
His synopsis of the Emperor’s New Groove saga and the three thoughts it gave him about being a writer are up in a post at Writer Unboxed.
