Abstract:

The 90-Day Screenplay will guide you through the process of outlining your screenplay, writing a first draft, and completing a rewrite, all in three months. In this day-by-day guide you will: Uncover the dilemma at the heart of your screenplay Learn how to write from your subconscious Rewrite your work efficiently Discover your story's structure as an experiential model Develop a process of getting the story from your imagination to the page"The 90-Day Screenplay is a game-changer. This is not a book that sits on your shelf. It's a proven process for anyone who has ever wanted to write a screenplay but has been too frozen by panic to get off their ass and do it. I wish I'd had this book when I started. It would have saved me five years of laying on the couch and shuddering in dread for fear of the unknown."- Howard Busgang (writer/executive producer Boy Meets World, Working the Engels)"If you're serious about your writing, buy this book. Even as a working professional, I refer back to it constantly. There's a kind of relaxed, organic approach to the instruction that feeds your creativity instead of robbing it with hard-and-fast rules about writing. The exercises presume that your unconscious knows exactly what the story is about and how it should lay out. All you have to do is get quiet and not interfere with the process. I love that idea because it takes all the pressure off. The more we try to force or muscle the story into shape, the more we get away from what it's really about. Al's book is incredibly clear and accessible. You don't need to have any background at all in screenwriting to follow it. The 90-Day Screenplay is a great addition to any writer's library."- Jessica Sharzer (writer, co-executive producer American Horror Story)"In a field littered with formulaic pap, Watt's approach has heart and soul. I've been a professional writer for nearly three decades, including a rewrite on a script that won an Academy Award, and for my money this is the best screenwriting guide on the market today."Philip McGrade (writer, Brand X, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson)
