How The Pros Do It

I’ve talked a few times about outlining on here, but haven’t been able to offer much insight into how various professionals in the business go about doing it. Well, now I can.

For episode 3 of their podcast Scriptnotes, John August and Craig Mazin, talk about how they outline and the various methods they’ve found helpful.

There’s a lot of good stuff in this episode. Techniques. Strategies. Work flows. A bunch of stuff. But the message still comes back to the right way to outline is whatever way helps you write. There are no absolutes.

If you haven’t checked out their podcast, do yourself a favor and do so. If you like John’s blog you’ll like the podcast. It’s not full of insider jargon and name dropping. It’s just two guys who love their craft that are trying to share what they can with the rest of us dredges.

Until next time, keep writing!
