After many years of acting and being an extra on screen, I decided that I wanted to be behind the camera instead of in front of it. I love screenwriting, revising and completely letting a story take me away.
I've been in the 'aspiring' screenwriting business for almost ten years and have written a few features and also a few shorts. I finally believe that I understand the screenwriting craft and am ready to move into the business properly.
I highly recommend the sites Simply Scripts and Scriptshadow for all new writers. Simply Scripts will give you much needed feedback on your works, while Scriptshadow will give you pointers on how to do a good job.
To all the screenwriters out there - Good luck and don't let criticism hold you back. Learn from it. Use it.
