We have previously described the Building Blocks to Success as CREATING – PROTECTING – MARKETING. For Screenwriters and Creators, it is obvious your process starts with the creative process that is based on a great idea. Last month we stated, “If you write about something you have a passion for, or keen interest in, that passion will shine through as an end result. Try to insure the story has a hook for the intended audience and incorporates a unique approach. Projects that are based on true stories or real-life experience, or specific genres can be successful. Both new and established writers create successful projects for Entertainment and Publishing (Film, TV, Stage, Music, Books, and other categories)”.
A very important element is to continually seek to improve your creative skills through education and many available resources. Now, we are providing some good sources for you to consider and reference for your screenwriting and creative process.
So, let’s summarize several of these resources for review and consideration:
- NetworkISA.org – The International Screenwriters Association presents numerous elements to help screenwriters succeed. An initial section called Articles & Advice can be an excellent reference to guide the direction of your creative projects. Source at https://www.networkisa.org/articles/most_viewed
