I'm retired military and an amateur screenwriter. I enjoy reading and writing scripts as a hobby. When I have some downtime, I’ll start building a story. It usually takes me about six months to finish a script. I spend a lot of time reading and researching the topic that I’m going to write about. I like using “The Screenwriter’s Bible” and “Save the Cat” as tools of the trade. When writing scripts, I pin down the title and logline before developing the core story. I like using the magnificent seven plot points for story structure. I use two large dry-erase boards to record the plot points and other salient ideas as I’m building the story. Great dialogue seems to be the long pole in the tent for me. Although, I believe I’m getting better in creating dynamic and evolving characters in my scripts. It's good to meet you...
