There are hundreds maybe thousands, of Screenplay Analysis, Scripts Doctors, Scriptwriting Coaches, and Screenplay Consultants. Some these will try and sell you on reinventing the wheel, (the three act structure) as a hook. Very few are comprehensive, and most create the need for several trips to the doctor. Then there is the proofreader, whose skills are often underestimated, but who stands as a crucial element in the success of any screenplay or manuscript. I received some good advice from a person who analysis, consults, and proofreads. “Finding the right person to work with is important. I say "work with" because you (the writer) must take an active role in the process. Don’t ask that loaded question “What do you think?” Let the editor know what it is you’re looking for and what impact you’re trying to make with your story. Sometimes the story you set out to write drifts off course, and too many times we just don’t see it. It’s also important to let whomever you work with know that you would like that person to explain and develop the "why" behind the criticism, and that you want ideas on how to proceed, in favour of the textbook criticism that can be used on all stories. When you do get feedback, give it time to set in. It can hurt at times. Sometimes it will crush you. Don’t let it; think about it, but always trust your inner voice. Once you find the right person, everything else just falls into place.” This is what hit home with me in the above advice: “the textbook criticism that can be used on all stories.” I sometimes wonder how script doctors would treat the script for “Chinatown?” How many of you have drifted around, trying to find the right person? And what would you like a coach, analyst, doctor, or consultant to cover?
