Dreaming about writing a screenplay?
Have you ever watched a movie and thought, “I could do better than that!” 
Maybe you’ve got a vision, some inspiration, and a handful of great ideas, but you just don’t know how to get started?
Or maybe, you bought a special screenwriting word processor but found it too complicated and intimidating. Yet you know it could help you write a great screenplay if you only knew how to structure your idea into a compelling and intriguing story.
Or, maybe you’ve already written a novel and want to convert it into a screenplay to see your story up on the big screen?
Either way, you’re here because you want to make something BRILLIANT and LIFE CHANGING.
Then congratulations!! I wrote “How to Write a Great Script with Scrivener 3” just for you.
What does all this mean for you?

•You can write a screenplay!•You can start a new career!•You can achieve your dream!So why should you take MY course?
I’m Wallace Wang, author of dozens of books including “Microsoft Office For Dummies,” “Absolute Beginner’s Guide to Computing,” and co-author of “Breaking Into Acting for Dummies.” I’ve spent a lifetime demystifying computers and other complicated topics to make them easy to understand for the average person. 
In addition, I’ve also written “The 15-Minute Movie Method,” Writing Scenes for Screenplays,” and “How to Write a Great Script with Final Draft.” All of these books distill the knowledge I’ve accumulated from studying movies from classics such as “Casablanca” and “It’s a Wonderful Life” to modern day blockbusters such as “WALL-E,” “Pulp Fiction,” and “Die Hard.” Just look at some of these quotes about my screenwriting books: 
***** Amazing book! Broke stuff down in such a clear way with lots and lots of examples. Worth having in your reference library as a writer.  J. Carrie
***** I absolutely love this book. He drills the concepts in with a repetitive style that at first I thought would be annoying but instead it has been the best way to come away with a working knowledge of the material. He uses lots of examples from movies I’ve actually seen. Literally transformed the way I’m writing now. S. Johnson
