20 Things You Must Know to Write a Great Screenplay

Structure determines the fate of your screenplay. Does each scene offer a surprise, a twist, or an unexpected event? Do the seven major turning points in the screenplay actually move the protagonist toward his goal?

Does the dialogue produce the purposeful miscommunication that each character in your screenplay must achieve? Does the protagonist change, and does the ending really confirm that the change is permanent?

This book will help you plan your script by understanding the elements that must go into each scene, each act, and finally, into your entire screenplay.
