“You can’t write your second script until you write your first.” Screenwriting is a tight and demanding medium but it is also one of the most exciting forms in which to write. Do you have a story in you that would make a fantastic film? Then this is the book that could enable you to turn that idea into a screenplay. Write That Script! brings together everything you need to know from idea to first draft and rewriting, with examples to show you how the theory works and tons of writing exercises to put the theory into practice.
Write That Script! covers idea, character, structure, plotting, crafting the individual scene, how to avoid procrastination, kick start your reluctant muse and more but its aim is to help you to get that first script written, because finishing your first script means you can write the next.
