Pro Screenwriter can clue you in to the realities of writing for film, so Ask Me Anything about what it takes and what to expect.
It seems like everybody wants to sell a screenplay. Everybody else wants to sell them a book or seminar on how to do it: How to format. How to structure. How to pitch an idea to an agent or producer. There’s even software available that will create a plot for you.
Nobody tells you what the real experience of a working screenwriter is like.
I wrote five screenplays before I sold one. I wrote 40 more by the time I sold 12 to the major studios. The mind games you play with yourself and within the industry to not only survive, but to sustain your focus and dreams are unbelievable. But they are no less an essential part of the process than format, or story, or structure. This AMA is not just about your practical business questions about working in the industry, but the realities of screenwriting.
