I am inspired to try to write a screenplay!!

This was an insightful look at the world of screen writing. I have zero experience in screen writing, and I felt like this was laid out in such a way that I would be able to try to write my own screenplay. I have made it a goal to spontaneously try new things and I am excited to take a crack at this now! There was a great blend of information and entertainment that made it a great listen!

Really bad

This book is all fluff, no substance. I kept waiting to hear something useful, It just never came.

If you read one screenwriting book in 2020 this is it!

I've read countless books on the craft of screenwriting but The Guide for Every Screenwriter: From Synopsis to Subplots: The Secrets of Screenwriting Revealed is by far one of the best books on the subject. Easy to understand, well organized and choke-full of valuable knowledge bombs. Highly recommended.

A great tool for screenwriters

This work of nonfiction is a great tool for those with dreams of screenwriting. The sections on structure/ plot section with subplots & Concept / theme triangle are really helpful. The narrator is excellent and the accompanying pdf is invaluable. Highly recommend this for not only beginning screenwriters, but seasoned writers as well.
