In case you don’t already know, a logline is a short summary of your script in one or two sentences. It’s got to be catchy enough to intrigue people. If you ask for professionals for coverage or feedback on a script, they’re likely to ask for the logline first. You don’t want to be caught with your pants down. #screenplaykindle #screenplaylife #screenplaylessons #screenplaymemes #screenplaymovie #screenplaymagazine Screenplay, Screenwriting, Intrigue, Summary, Sentences, Script, Feedback, Coverage, Case

It’s one thing to say you’re a screenwriter, but it’s another thing to actually show it. Most gigs ask for work samples or a portfolio which they assume will have your work samples. Writing samples show what you can do and people using the samples can decide whether you’re right for the project. #screenplay #screenplays #screenplaywriter #screenplayproductions #screenplayed #ascreenplaybook #screenplaydialogue Screenwriters, Sayings, Writing, Inspiration, The One, People, Screenplay Writer

Whether it’s your blogs or your social media links, it’s a one stop shop for people to see your stuff. It’s an organized way for people to easily look at your work. It helps serve as a form of passive advertisement. Many jobs ask for a portfolio when you apply. Having a portfolio allows you to leave a link on their job board profile and people can check it out. #screenplaygoals #screenplaygenius #screenplayidea #screenplayjobs #screenplayjury #screenplayking #screenplaykindle Job Board, Jury, 3 Things, Check It Out, Genius, Planets

If you plan to write in television, then being in LA is a must. There’s not way around that. That’s where the shows are filmed and that’s where the writers rooms are. If you’re a film writer, it’s not necessary to be in LA unless you plan to network. #screenplaykindle #screenplaylife #screenplaylessons #screenplaymemes #screenplaymovie #screenplaymagazine Film Writer, Writers, Rooms, How To Plan

Are you trying to make a living writing scripts? If the answer to that is yes, then you don’t need to go to LA to do that. Just read my post Do You Know How To Make Money Writing Screenplays where I list ways for you to monetize your writing. In my humble opinion, I think this way is more beneficial to screenwriters because it helps build value for your work. #screenplay #screenplays #screenplaywriter #screenplayproductions #screenplayed #ascreenplaybook Make Money Writing, How To Make Money, You Tried, Did You Know, Writing Scripts, Monetize

This is a question that every screenwriter eventually asks. Hell, I’ve found myself asking it, but it’s not an easy question to answer. The reason why is because you have to ask yourself, “what do I want?” #screenplaygenius #screenplayidea #screenplayjobs #screenplayjury #screenplayking #screenplaykindle Biblical Inspiration

If you’ve ever watched a Marvel film in the theater with a bunch of people, it has a different type of energy that can’t be duplicated at home. The collective laughs, sighs and the cathartic range of emotions are infectious. When you’re watching by yourself, there’s no connection to the collective and it’s almost like a void without an audience. #screenplay #screenplays #screenplaywriter #screenplayproductions #screenplayed #ascreenplaybook Marvel Films, Void, Audience, Bunch, Theater

This is yet again another brag the introvert mob likes to throw out. Their popcorn is better than the popcorn at the theaters. DOUBTFUL. Reminds me of the part in the Eddie Murphy comedy special, Delirious, where he asks his mom for McDonald’s and she tells him that she can make a burger better than McDonald’s. #screenplaydialogue #screenplaygoals #screenplaygenius #screenplayidea #screenplayjobs #screenplayjury #screenplayking Comedy Specials, Eddie Murphy, Brag, Movie Theater, Warner Bros, Introvert

For those that complain about rude people on their cell phones or talking too loud, I admit that can be annoying. Going to the theater at 8 pm on a Friday night is bound guarantee a packed house. However, my most favorite movie theater experiences have been when I went at odd hours of the week. #screenplaykindle #screenplaylife #screenplaylessons #screenplaymemes #screenplaymovie #screenplaymagazine Most Favorite, Favorite Movies, I Screwed Up, Rude People, Annoyed

Many people say what will be the lost is the movie experience. I disagree with that. Watching a movie is a movie experience. What you’ll lose with the absence of movie theaters is the special experience. Let me explain. Do you remember what it was like as a kid during the month of December waiting for Christmas. #screenplayproductions #screenplayed #ascreenplaybook #screenplaydialogue #screenplaygoals #screenplaygenius #screenplayidea The Absence, Say What, Do You Remember, Hbo, Waiting

There’s something that he/she wants and the people that they interact with throw wrenches to keep them from getting it. There must also be a secondary conflict that exacerbates the main problem.

Character is important because it’s who the movie is centered around. If you don’t have a good character, forget about it. People want a character they can identify with. A character that is flawed, but likable. Somebody that can get empathy and stir emotions within them. #ascreenplaybook #screenplaydialogue #screenplaygoals #screenplaygenius #screenplayidea #screenplayjobs Good Character, Essential Elements, Empathy, Identify, Heard

It helps to at least know the climax of each act and how you plan on building up to that climax. Having an idea is less than half the battle so do your due diligence and map out the acts in your head. You’ll find that if you do this, you may not even need an outline as you’ll know what each scene is supposed to achieve. #screenplay #screenplays #screenplaywriter #screenplayproductions #screenplayed #ascreenplaybook Diligence, Having An Idea, Outline, Achievement, Battle
The amount of people that have a great idea but no plot for their story is astounding.
