filmI’m one of those people that likes things wrapped up into neat, little packages. I’ve given you guides on fiction writing, radio drama and a slew of poetry resources (more coming on that later).

For worksheets, I like

Jamie Gold (includes sheets for Hague’s 6-Stage Plot and Save the Cat)
ScriptFrenzy (use the high workbook)
Syd Field (Paradigm)
NaNoWriMo Lansing (not specific to screenplays but lots of goodies)

laptop-writerGood advice on script formatting from Scribophile and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts.

For oodles of scripts to study, head on over to IMSDb, Simply Scripts, Google TV Writing, or LA Screenwriter.

scriptcraftThen pop into Screen Craft and sign up for all of their 25 Twitter Accounts to Follow or listen to podcasts from their 5 Best list.

You’ll also want to follow all of the Top 25 Screenwriting Blogs listed at Screenwriting SPARK.

Once you’ve got a script polished, get some exposure by entering one of the many contests listed at MovieBytes or Diana Botsford’s Blog.

And be sure to leave a comment, if you find a good resource that I’ve missed. You guys can’t possibly all be zonked out on eggnog just yet.
