Screenwriting - where to start?
With the internet, it's a lot easier than you think.
If you want to read some awesome screenplays, go here.
Then go buy, or rent the movies.
See how things compare onscreen, to what's been written on the page.
Look at when things occur.
How does the story unfold?
You don't need to spend large amounts of money!
Read Screenplays. Watch Movies. Read Screenplays.
Chewie, we're home!
Ask any racer. Any real racer. It don't matter if you
win by an inch or a mile. Winning's winning.
The absolute base-level thing that you do as a new screenwriter is send out query letters. Literally, you just say, 'Hi, Mr. So-and-So,' and you give them a one-sentence description of one of your scripts. You send it out to a list of people you found on the Internet.
Remember those deadlines you set yourself at the start of the year.
Are you still working towards them?
Stay on target!
