Writing a Screenplay

Free downloadable Go Into The Story eBook by Scott Myers.

Why am I smiling? Because today I’m making available to the public the 3rd in a series of twelve monthly eBooks featuring some of my 21,000+ Go Into The Story posts. And it’s free! Just click on the link below to download a 30 page eBook titled: “Writing a Screenplay”.

Link.

Here are the twelve titles I will be releasing in 2017 (not necessarily in this order):

30 Things About Screenwriting

So-Called Screenwriting ‘Rules’

Everything You Wanted to Know About Specs

Guide to Aristotle’s “Poetics”

Character Types

How To Read A Screenplay

Writing A Script

Rewriting a Script

Movie Story Types

The Theology of Screenwriting

Writing and the Creative Life

The Business of Screenwriting

The idea is that having the content available as an eBook will be another useful way for writers to digest ideas and information from the blog.

Think of it as a kind Go Into The Story Greatest Hits collection.

Each will be free. Download them. Read them. Pass them along.

A very special thanks to Trish Curtin and Clay Mitchell who are stepping up to handle the process turning blog posts into eBooks. I could not be doing this without the efforts of these two fine people.

A final note excerpted from the eBook’s foreword:

The collection contains my reflections and takes on basic tenets of the craft. If any of them resonate with you, great. If not, feel free to ignore them. Each writer needs to figure out their own approach to screenwriting. My hope is to help feed that process and provide writers with inspiration along the way.

Spread the word, would you? And the download link.

Much more to come each month in 2017.

Onward!
