When a screenwriter enters the beat, he almost hears the characters talking through him. If only those characters would tell the author how to edit. Or are written from a hole in the plot. Or maybe even sell the script.
It is true that there are some magical moments in the creative process, but they usually don’t seem like that until after the fact. Right now, a lot of it is hard work, and it can be even more difficult if you use the wrong tools. These days, it’s not enough to just use an old model on your default word processing software. You need a platform that will allow you to plot, write, and edit with equal ease. And more and more writers find the WriterDuet Scenario Pro package hits all marks.
If you just want to jump in and start deleting pages, you’ll immediately fall in love with WriterDuet’s interface. Start typing “EXT” or “INT” and the software will automatically put your scene description with the correct formatting. By pressing “enter” or “tab” you can easily switch between character names and dialog formatting. It’s about removing barriers from your thought process, and the software alone is worth the price.
But it’s in the plotting and editing process that WriterDuet really shines. With one click, you can switch to outline or “rhythm sheet” mode, formatted in a mind map mode that allows you to change events or add new complications and new characters as needed.
The app is cloud-based, so you can work from anywhere. Most importantly, you can easily share your work with editors or contributors who can comment on your lines. Once changes are made, instantly comment on those revisions. It really takes the headache out of the process and gets you back to your next big idea.
