take advice

Bill Cunningham has 10 solid tips for screenwriting on his DISC/ontent site. They’re well worth checking out.

He is specifically discussing the Direct-2-DVD market, but you could apply much of his advice to screenplays that are aimed at the Hollywood market.

My own script trundles along. I might be finished earlier than I expected if I keep up my current pace.

It’s pretty creaky in places, however. Too much dialogue, not enough visual storytelling, obvious exposition… but, the story is emerging.

I can’t wait to rewrite this fucker. At the moment I waver between satisfaction at wrestling this beast onto paper, and embarrassment at its obvious ineptitude.

What keeps me going is the belief that I will iron out the problems in the re-write.

I better not be fooling myself on that score…
