At a Glance
Whether you believe in writer’s block or not, you’ve no doubt had days that consist mostly of staring at a blank page. Most of the time, all you need is that simple if not elusive motivational key that ignites your creative engine and gets those wheels turning. Now Write! Screenwriting is the book to do just that.
The Now Write! series has been helping writers of all mediums thwart the blinking cursor for years. In this edition, the renowned screenwriters of films like Raging Bull, Groundhog Day, Cape Fear and Terminator 2 are joined by television scribes of “Lost,” “True Blood,” and “The Shield” to guide you through their personal favorite writing exercises.
While learning from the masters is essential to writing, putting those lessons into practice can be daunting. Not with Now Write! In this book, each prompt comes with commentary by the author to explain why their method works, and how to make every drill work for you so that you can get to work immediately.
These hands-on practices challenge you in a pragmatic way as you learn from the best by doing what they do, and the lessons will help you for years to come. Create a new premise in a single morning, or take your current story to new heights with the guidance of Now Write! Screenwriting.
