First Drafts

Just a quick tip for all my fellow ScriptFrenzyers...

The first draft is supposed to be sprawling. It should be way too long. It should have irrelevant scenes. It should have shaky dialogue. Do not keep reworking a scene over and over until it's perfect before moving on. You need to ride the wave of momentum.

Trying to get it all right on the first draft is like editing a feature film in-camera. You need to shoot it first, then go back through the footage and find your script in it.
