It’s time to get serious about the craft. Read scripts.
Seriously. Watching movies is for filmmakers. Here are some places to start.:
American Film Scripts Online, alexanderstreet.com/products/american-film-scripts ( You may have to access through a public or university library database)
Script – O – Rama, www.script-o-rama.com/
And you could buy them:
If you don’t have the patience to read and study scripts, how the heck can you function on somebody’s writing staff? Or on a freelance assignment?
And while you’re at it, read great literature: poems, graphic novels, novels, magazine and journal articles. GIGO all the way, baby.
