The Step-By-Step Course That Shows You How to Write Your Screenplay in Just 10 Days!

“If you want to write screenplays for a living, there is nothing more valuable for a writer than being able to produce a quality screenplay quickly. We created this course to give you all the tools you need to accomplish exactly that. This system is laid out in a way that we hope writers of all experience levels will find easy to use. Our promise is simple: follow this system and in 10 days, you’ll have a powerful script finished!” – Travis Donnelly, writer & producer of Medium, co-author of The 10-Day Screenplay

Some of the most famous movies in history were written in 10 days or less.

Sylvester Stallone wrote Rocky in just three days. The movie became one of the most successful of all time and made Stallone an international superstar.

Kevin Williamson wrote Scream in four days. The script created a hot bidding war and made Williamson one of the highest-paid screenwriters in Hollywood.

Joe Eszterhas wrote Basic Instinct in 10 days. When he was finished, he shipped the script to his agent and sold it three days later for $3 million.

Not only is it possible to write a great screenplay in 10 days or less, but spending too much time on a script is actually one of the worst mistakes a screenwriter can make! It can lead to boring, dull, and unoriginal scripts.

Stop wasting so much time and energy trying to write your next screenplay. Simply follow this program and in as little as 10 days, you’ll finish the screenplay that could just launch your screenwriting career!

The 10-Day Screenplay system works like this:

STEP 1: The 10-Day Screenplay shows you how to evaluate your initial idea using the five requirements of every great movie idea. Is your idea unique? Is it big enough? Will it make for a compelling two-hour movie? What can be done to make your idea bigger and better?

STEP 2: The 10-Day Screenplay system forces you to flesh out your characters. Contrary to anything you may have heard, great characters make great movies. You need to really know your characters and let THEM dictate your plot, NOT the other way around. Amateur screenwriters come up with a plot and then plug in forced characters to play it out. This is a huge mistake and you'll never succeed this way!

STEP 3: Once you have your idea and your characters, it's time to write your script following The 10-Day Screenplay course. Each day of the course includes an important lesson on what your story objective should be for that day along with a manageable writing assignment. If you simply follow this course, at the end of the 10 days, you will have a finished script!

To make this process easy to understand, The 10-Day Screenplay breaks down six blockbuster movies along the way – Rocky, Die Hard, Home Alone, There’s Something About Mary, Scream, and Bridesmaids. You’ll see how our plot and character techniques worked in each movie and how they can be applied to your screenplay.
It's time to stop dreaming and start writing! This book will show you the way.

The title and price alone caused a couple of red flags to pop up for me. I own at least 20 books on screenwriting, none of which cost under 12 dollars, and certainly none of them claim that you can write a screenplay in ten days. Although I firmly subscribe to the old “if it’s too good to be true” adage, for some reason I decided to take a chance on this book. Thank god I did!

I’ve read a few screenwriting books by now. I think Syd Field’s Screenplay pairs nicely with this quick read. The individual chapters outline the daily goals for each of the 10 days without dragging out the task at hand, making for an easily reusable approach to knocking out the first draft of your screenplay. I expect this particular book to stick around in my own writing moving forward.

I’m a professional screenwriter and I got in a bit of a slump. This was a good smack in the head reminder for what’s important and why it doesn’t have to take months or years to write a fantastic script.

A very helpful guide

I can see how this will help with my writing of future screenplays. I am an independent filmmaker and really look forward to implementing the plan this book lays out. Having read, reread and dogeared several of Syd Field’s screenwriting books, I see this as a great complementary technique. While the book is simplistic in its approach, it says only what needs to be said. I tend to write scripts within a 20 day period, and I see how using the plan the book presents as very doable. I know a screenplay can be written in 10 days or less. I’ve done it. This book makes it very realistic.

Great and quick read

I’m ready !!!! I had the idea already but reading this book (which happened in one hour while walking on the treadmill) has given me a specific vision and path that I hadn’t thought about. Thanks for writing this

Excellent Book

This book gives you a very solid outline for script writing. It’s written in a way that everyone can understand. It especially helps you delve into character development to heights most would not think of. I would highly recommend this book.

if you don’t have any experience with writing screenplays this book is a good guide to get you from point A to Z. I like the way that it gives you cinematic examples that you can watch while you’re writing.

A great beat sheet

This book along with final draft software is really all you need to write that screenplay that’s in your head. Final draft will take care of the formatting all you have to do is write.
