The perfect 101 for will-be screenwriters
May 24, 2016
Most would-be screenwriters have a drawer (or a desktop folder) filled with "starts." These are the great ideas we had that we actually took some action on, but ended up dropping before getting through Act I. The first key to success in screenwriting (or any type of writing) is to actually FINISH the script!
This book from Scott King gives you a perfect starting place for developing the habit of actually finishing those scripts. It's a good first step for any screenwriter, and gives you some practical advice and pointers right from the start. The style of this book is quirky and engaging, and it lives up to its promise of being a nice "101" for will-be screenwriters. It's worth reading regardless of the type of writing you want to do in your career, and particularly if you want to write screenplays for a living!
