How to Write a Screenplay (During a Quarantine) Header fix
Today we're releasing our new step-by-step guide to help you write a screenplay... while you're stuck at home. Did we mention it's 100 pages? And it's absolutely free?

We're all stuck in the house with nowhere to go. We can't go into production on anything, thanks to coronavirus. But what we can do, is write. It's time to flesh out that story idea you've been thinking about!

What will this book do for you?

Will this eBook really teach me How to Write a Screenplay?

We think so! Look, there is no one way to learn how to write a screenplay. And of course, rules are made to be broken.

But the truth is, no matter what, writing a screenplay is hard. Even when you aren’t saddled with an extra layer of anxiety about the state of the world and the health of your family.

We created this eBook to help you jump in and start writing. 

Written by screenwriter, teacher, and prolific No Film School contributor, Jason Hellerman, How to Write a Screenplay (During Quarantine) combines many of the best practices, tricks, and resources found in dozens of screenwriting books out there on the market.

Our main goal with this eBook is to prompt you to put pen to paper—whether this is your first time writing a script or your hundredth.

If you find the guide as helpful as we hope you will, you can thank us by spreading the word about it. Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, or anywhere. 

As always with No Film School, we're offering one set of methods and solutions we think work, but if you have others share them so we can, as a community, grow together. 

Because we've all had story ideas kicking around in our heads. But in the words of famous screenwriter William Goldman, "The easiest thing to do on earth is not write."

It's hard to find the time. Life gets in the way.

Until now. Thanks to the coronavirus, we don't have a life...

So go ahead and fill out the form above to get reading/writing!

After you've read the eBook, let us know what you think in the comments. Are there methods you utilize that we didn't cover? Are there things we mention you disagree with? What would you like to see in a next version?

Happy writing!

Thanks a lot Jason Hellerman for this wonderful free e-book.
I read the entire book at one go. I just could not stop reading it. Written very well. Explanations accompanied with examples from the movies did a wonderful job. I could recall and connect easily. Good stuff for the beginners as well as a refresher for the pros.
Thank you NFS for sharing this with us.

Sounds like a LOT of people never got the book, and No Film School doesn't seem interested in fixing that.

Hmmm.

This book is very important in the life of every screenwriter and just a writer. Inspiration does not always come to those who are waiting for it. Many authors did not wait, but forced themselves to work. For example, I know that Murakami had a strict regime, Marcel Proust did not leave the room, George Sand did not sleep at all at night and ate chocolate. When I run out of energy, I go to edusson.com and read the blog, where I can find many useful ideas or just get inspired to create or write something new. Edusson is the best online essay writing service for me. I am also often inspired by reading biographies of popular directors and screenwriters.
