Writing is a skill. And it can be learned and improved by investing a serious amount of time and dedication. Writing a screenplay is a long and challenging process. It requires a degree of technical know-how. There are few steps you can follow when developing your screenplay.

1. Write your logline

2. Build a treatment – Your first sketch

3. Structure an outline

4. Develop your characters

5. Write your first draft

6. Format your screenplay

7. Take a break, Relax
