    I can heartily recommend this book I was looking for a way to take a bunch of nebulous ideas and apply screenwriting craft to these, to give the necessary structure to my story and backgrounds desires to my characters I have only 20 minutes a day to write on my train journey home from my work each day.The book forces you to think about some of the most important aspects of your characters what do they want, what do they have to overcome etc along with plot essentials such as conflict It took me through a number of exercises that not only help me put structure around the characters and story line as I already envisaged them but also elicited further creativity by forcing me to consider and answer certain questions that I hadn t yet considered This gave me many options for how my film could evolve while giving me confidence that I was hitting the right notes and pace to make the script ultimately marketable.What this book won t give you not to a great level of detail is everything you need to know about formatting your script and this is not a criticism as it is not what the book sets out to achieve There are established paradigms in Hollywood for how scripts should be formatted and it is important to know and practice these so that your script doesn t rejected before the content has even been digested For this I highly recommend The Hollywood Standard by Christopher Riley also available here on .

    This book is filled with brilliantly articulated tools to help overcome the excuse of not having the time or inspiration to write It s delivered in a practical style and written in a friendly and warm way Read it straight through or just go straight to the places where you may be hung up Keep in mind, this book isn t a template that substitutes for creativity but a bulldozer that breaks down walls to help your creativity to come through Highly recommend whether you have the smallest hint of a good concept or a fully formed idea you need help refining.
