Publisher's Summary

Learn how to write a screenplay today the easiest way!

An increasing number of people have taken to script writing as a way of breaking into the movies. Unfortunately, there is also widespread misunderstanding as to exactly what a screenplay is and how it differs from other types of written work, such as novels or plays. Because of this lack of understanding, a lot of people fail as scriptwriters.

This audiobook attempts to help young writers become scriptwriters by explaining what a screenplay is and how to write them so that they can avoid many of the common pitfalls that befall many inexperienced writers, and provide them with some of the tools that they will need to succeed.

One important piece of advice before you proceed: Try to read as many scripts as possible before you start writing. This will give you a feel for what a screenplay actually is as well as the general formatting standards used in the industry. Scripts can easily be downloaded from many websites, or if you would like some screenwriter’s commentary, you can buy published screenplays from the bookstore.

Here is a preview of what you'll learn....

  • What is a screenplay
  • The three-act structure
  • Creating memorable characters
  • Starting and ending your script
  • Tips on the writing process
  • Script formatting
  • And much, much more!
