Script-wise is for students of writing and media, but it is also for novelists and playwrights adapting works for the screen, for writers stalled on a first script, or anyone who wants to write a script but doesn't know where to start. Previously available only to clients of Script Wizard Software, this engaging little pamphlet effectively takes readers from no knowledge to a thorough understanding of screenwriting in under fifty pages. This is an eye-opening backstory that illuminates and clarifies an ever-expanding writing niche.

About the Book

“The topic is scriptwriting – the job requirements, the writing requirements, and the occupational hazards and challenges.”

Published originally in 1993 to support a rising tide of aspiring screenwriters, Script-wise gives newcomers perspective on what they are trying to accomplish, an understanding of scriptwriting formats and conventions, and insight on how to leverage that understanding while writing.  One of the first texts on scriptwriting in the digital era, the approach and style have been widely imitated but Script-wise remains unique in its understanding of the problems that plague the novice, and in the practical solutions it offers.

Use it to find your footing and get started, jump-start a stalled project, or kick-start your student’s introduction to scriptwriting. You will not be disappointed.
