So You Want to Be a Screenwriter...
Most writers have a ton of unfinished novels and screenplays on a flash drive somewhere. Generally, it's because they lost the motivation to finish the project, hit a brick wall in the narrative or just don't know how to take that next step in the process.
Fortunately, there's an entertaining and helpful article - more like a book, really - that answers any questions a writer might have when it comes to screenwriting, including whether that idea might be better suited for a different format altogether.
Start reading Part 1 of "Screenwriting 101" here. Part 2 is here.
(Note: The article is written by an anonymous industry professional known as Film Crit Hulk. As such, he writes in ALL CAPS as part of the gimmick. If this proves too much for your eyes, try pasting the article into convertcase.net.)
