Take your craft seriously......

......if you want to be in the top 1% and sell that screenplay you've been working on for years:

"Write great scripts, with original story concepts, play the marketing game, and it seems to me that a spec script sale will be imminent.

Are you taking this craft seriously?

Are you:

  • writing daily, several pages?
  • constantly brainstorming story concepts, coming up with high concept loglines?
  • reading all the books on screenwriting you can get your hands on, regularly?
  • reading screenplays of movies in the genre you are writing?
  • participating in a local screenwriters group, or at least networking with other serious writers?
  • structuring your stories, beating out the scenes before typing FADE IN?"
