    Screenwriter Dustin Lance Black ("Milk," "J. Edgar") takes viewers inside his creative process in an exploration of his 8 step process for writing a screenplay:

    1. Answer the WHY
    2. Research
    3. Don't make it "relatable", make it "specific"
    4. Extract the cinematic moments
    5. Cut
    6. Watch your film
    7. Locking the outline
    8. Write your 1st draft aka the Vomit Draft

    I use an inexpensive program called TextAloud to convert files from text to voice (MP3). It is great for finding typos, learning boring material (while I do the housework) and imprinting successful writing into my psyche. But also, imagine listening to your project repeatedly while you are away from the keyboard. How much more of your subconscious would you be able to get work on your masterpiece, while you do other things? How much faster would get it done?

    I have always want to be part of a team of writers churning out scripts for a sitcom.

      Thanks Brian. It takes highly motivated people to complete lengthy writing projects alone. It can be lonely and difficult to get feedback. Writing as a team (as long as one is flexible) solves these problems and can be truckload of laughs (literally).

    I've started a new, feature-length Project and am currently working on the Outline:

    http://www.plotbot.com/screenplays/app/

    Plotbot is FREE but requires registration. The APP screenplay is set to private but I will grant Reader Access to those who ask for it.
