Screenwriting Software Programs

If you decide to use a screenwriting software program, there is a super-fast and super-easy way to learn how to use the program.

  • Simply type the first 2 pages of my sample screenplay into the software program.
  • Then, print the first 2 pages and compare those printed pages to the pages of my sample screenplay you see here.

They should look the same, but it does not have to be perfect. Try not to spend lots of time and money on this part. You can always write by hand.

Writing Your Screenplay By Hand

Yes, it is a great idea to write your first screenplay by hand. There are many famous writers that begin writing their films or books by hand-writing into notebooks.
