RIP Blake Snyder

I'm not a complete devotee of Save the Cat, but I think the book and its method have a lot of merit. So imagine my surprise to see a tweet from Blake Snyder (@Blake_Snyder) that read:

passed away earlier today. Please visit blakesnyder.com

I assumed it was truncated, missing the name in question, but instead... He was the one gone, notifying the world via a posthumous tweet and a goodbye blog from someone. I don't know why, but finding out about death in this way seems really odd to me.

And selfishly, I'm now going to have an even harder time writing and not procrastinating today.

RIP Blake, I'll use your wisdom for years to come.
