"The topic is scriptwriting - the job requirements, the writing requirements, and the occupational hazards and challenges."

Previously available only to clients of Script Wizard Software, this engaging little pamphlet effectively takes readers from no knowledge to a thorough understanding of scriptwriting in under fifty pages. Published originally in 1993 to support a rising tide of aspiring screenwriters unfamiliar with the form and production requirements, Script-wise gives newcomers perspective on what they are trying to accomplish, an understanding of scriptwriting formats and conventions, and insight on how to leverage that understanding while writing.

One of the first texts on scriptwriting in the digital era, Warren's approach and style have been imitated but Script-wise remains unique in its understanding of the problems that plague the novice, and in the practical solutions it offers. It is for students of writing and media, but it is also for novelists and playwrights adapting works for the screen, for writers stalled on a first script, or anyone who wants to write a script but doesn't know where to start. This is an eye-opening backstory that illuminates and clarifies an ever-expanding writing specialty.
