A lot of people come to me complaining that they’re good scriptwriters but they can never come up with film script ideas. The fact is that everybody can come up with ideas if you devote the time and effort to it. There are a few techniques you can use which will significantly help you. These are at the bottom of the page.
Brainstorming seems to be a lost art today. When people should be devoting time to drumming up these ideas you will instead find them reading their emails, playing games and many other forms of procrastination.
I know because I do it myself. It can be very mentally challenging to just sit down, with no distractions and think.
Without a film script idea, a film script cannot come to being. If you were to just sit down and attempt to write a script from whatever was in your head at the time you’d probably get about 10 pages in, lose steam and develop “writers block”
If you want to succeed as a scriptwriter than you need to put in the thinking time when it comes to your initial film script idea.
It would be no good for me to come up with a specific schedule for you to keep because everyone is creatively different. Personally I feel most creative around midnight. Your best time could be when you’ve just got home from work and feel ready to vent your spleen. We’re all different.
What this section of the site is for is to help provide a loose structure and guide for how to create film script ideas with the potential to be developed into a full script. Some ideas will be tried and tested (brainstorming, walking on your idea, etc) while others might be considered a little wilder (my own secret method, hypnosis, etc).
There will also be writing concepts and theories within this section.
