It’s been a great week!
In the Scripter’s Writing Room this week, we worked on a story problem from Jen Englund.
“When a story premise is in question is there an early stress test or exercise to flush it out that might be more productive than actually writing the pilot script?”
The answer might surprise you. It’s yes, and no! You must write a treatment, a two or three-page description of the story from beginning to end.
To develop your characters, use The Four Magic Questions of Screenwriting and then do the character work in the How To Write A Screenplay in 10 Weeks book to fill out the characters, then use you can use the Word Of The Day to brainstorm scenes, and finally return to the How To Write A Screenplay In Ten Weeks book and use the Mythic Journey Map® to organize the script if you decide to write it. Also, I have a series of video tutorials on writing the half-hour comedy pilot on my website.

The next webinar will be held on March 2nd, 2022 from 7:00-8:30 pm EST.
During the winter of 2020, the scripting technique was introduced in a free webinar series. This writing routine has led to major breakthroughs, opened possibilities, and continues to encourage creative thinking. Now, we are using the scripting system to solve problems and remove blocks.
