Congrats! You wrote a script! That’s great news and a big deal. The bad news is: you’re just getting started. There is so much more work to do now. After all, “writing is rewriting”. Every writer knows that. Unfortunately not everyone knows how important to the screenwriting process the second draft really is. It’s a lot […]
