Description: You don't have to be an idiot to be confused about the best way to begin a screenwriting career -- or even to write screenplays for one's own amusement. What are the best things to write about in the new millennium, and how should a novice go about writing about them? Do you really need a college degree or to take expensive workshops to learn the tricks of the trade? Are all those screenwriting gurus and online courses worth the money? Are the contests on the up-and-up? Do you really need an agent? How will the digital revolution change the art of screenwriting?

CIG to Screenwriting answers all those questions and more. Written by someone who has "been there, done that" -- taken every wrong turn, suffered every blow -- and lived to tell the tale -- this is a comprehensive guide to the world of screenwriting today.

CIG to Screenwriting will beat out the competition for a number of reasons: most of the books aspiring screenwriters buy were originally written years -- even decades -- ago. A number of them were written by people who haven't sold much or have never written a screenplay at all. Many Hollywood gurus are pushing their own ideological agendas; the best of them have retired or aren't accessible. The same questions are asked again and again on chat and newsgroups -- and the answers are offered right here!
