Making a Good Script Great
"Making a good script great is not just a matter of having a good idea. Nor is it a matter of just putting that good idea down on paper. In scriptwriting, it's not just the writing but also the 'rewriting' that counts. This book focuses on the rewriting process and offers specific methods to help you craft tighter, stronger and more workable scripts." - back cover.
