An invaluable resource for building an outline or treatment, The Pocket Screenwriting Guide assists you in writing the rough draft, and serves as a reference during the writing and rewriting process to help tighten and focus subsequent drafts.
Never start a screenplay alone again. Keep The Pocket Screenwriting Guide close at hand every time you write a script.
