Writing a Screenplay

Image result for screenplayI was suddenly struck with an idea this week and I haven’t been able to get it out of my head since. Any time this happens to me, I know that it’s something I just have to do. So I’m currently working on a screenplay, which perhaps will never see the light of day (although I will certainly try to get it out there), but it’s good practice nonetheless. Turns out, there are quite a lot of rules regarding format for a screenplay. Thankfully, you can figure out how to do ANYTHING with the help of youtube and other bloggers (thank you bloggers!)

As I work on my new project, I’ve enjoyed reading screenplays and watching the show or movie to see how it all turned out. I rarely think about the person who sat down and wrote the script when I’m watching a movie. They’re someone obscure to me because typically the actors and director make the words come alive. Yet that whole production starts with written words and that’s powerful. I want to take part in something creative that way.

If you happen to be reading this and have any experience with screenplays, I’d love to hear from you!
