Believe in Your Dream: Script Frenzy Tip #24

As we near the end of Script Frenzy month, it might help to remind yourself that even an unknown writer can make it with a great script–believe in your dream.

Here is an inspiring story from DeadlineNY: “Relativity Media beat out four studios to pay $650,000 against $1.1 million to scribe Brad Ingelsby, who was at the time living with his parents in Pennsylvania and working for his dad’s insurance business … The Low Dweller is a dark drama set in 1986 Indiana. The protagonist is Slim, a man released after serving years in prison for murder who wants only to follow through on his promise to marry his long-suffering girlfriend.”

To help all the aspiring screenwriters, comic book writers, and playwrights participating in the Script Frenzy writing marathon, we will feature a new script writing tool or tip every day this month. Read all the advice at this link.
