    Read it if other screenwriting books didn't worked for you

    While the book's title suggests the book is about fighting writer's block, only about one third of the book is actually devoted to that, the rest of the book is divided between general aspects of screenwriting like characters, structure and format, and a few topics about the industry (pitch meetings, selling your script). I¿ll actually consider this book more of an inspirational book. What I really didn¿t like about this book was the ¿give Hollywood what they want¿ type of advice that fills many areas of the book. If you just started or plan to start writing your script, and you don't know how to developed the story idea, then, maybe this book will help you. If you are having problems with your script and you are stuck because you can¿t identify what¿s wrong, I¿ll suggest ¿The Art of Dramatic Writing¿ by Lajos Egri, although it is focus on playwriting and character-centered conflict and it doesn¿t deal with writer¿s block per se, it explains clearly how and why drama works and it¿s concepts can be easily applied to screenwriting.

    Look Within

    Writing can really be simple if you know how to track your creative thoughts. This book shows you just how to do that and get it down on paper. Before you know it you've got the script/story in a format to show. Is it a dream? No, it's Script Magic by Marissa D'Vari.
