Want to get out there and start earning a living as a writer? Sure, we all have dreams of selling a script for big bucks. But what can we do while we wait for that to happen? How do we give up the day job and be a working writer? That's what this book covers.
A great companian piece, "Write a Script in 10 Weeks" is a short, sharp, punchy guide to moving from black page to first draft. Of course, you could do it in less time, but we assume you have other things going on in your life and are a developing writer. This is a realistic, solid and practical week-by-week framework to help you move forward and get that feature / TV spec script done. With an encouraging foreword by Tim John (writer of A Street Cat Named Bob).
