Welcome Natalee! My advice is to read lots of scripts
Hi Natalee, welcome to the site, I'm a literary editor and have edited many scripts for members of stage 32. My advice would be keep your action lines short and sweet, with just the main detail of the scene, remember to put new scene lines in whenever your characters move rooms (I know that sounds obvious, but you would be surprised as how much people forget to do that in the excitement of the writing process). Don't direct, no matter how much the temptation is and remember 'show, don't tell', don't write about what a character is thinking or how they are feeling (when watching a film you would not know what a character is thinking or feeling unless there is a voice over or speech bubble) and as Adam said, read some scripts to get an idea of how it's done :)
Welcome, Natalee—it's a fun ride! =)
