There are nearly 50,000 screenplays registered with the Writer’s Guild every year. And 99 percent of them suck. But they don’t have to. That’s why I decided to write this book. So before you head out to another hundred-dollar screenwriting conference to learn how to write a screenplay or buy another paint-by-the-numbers 3-act script formula give my book a try. I can’t guarantee you’ll sell your script.

This very fast listen is a perfect launching board to get you writing. It's motivating and helps you figure out where to get started. Getting yourself to write is overwhelming as it is, and a lofty book about indentations and capitalization is just not what I needed at the moment. While it is short and sweet, it is still filled with some surprisingly good advice and you definitely walk away feeling like you learned something you needed to know. Thanks Michael!
