What does it take to get past that first draft mode? Too many of us spend far more time than necessary working on a first draft. We all know we need to get through it quickly, but Felicity and Max discuss in another round of Wine Wednesdays how the outlining process - if done well and extensively - can get you through your first and even second draft without ever having to write any pages. By the time you do open up your Final Draft software, you should know exactly where you're going and how you're going to get there. Sure, dialogue and character action may change and evolve, but if you don't know the whole story before you get to that screenwriting software, you will lose yourself and your character by page 40...and then have to start all over again and maybe wallow in some fresh vino. Max and Felicity are here to keep you from wallowing and instead, enjoy that glass of wine as well as your initial drafts. Join in on the fun as we raise a glass to your final draft.
Remember, Felicity Wren and Max Timm always have open Q&A during every Facebook Live broadcast, so you should tune in when they broadcast their next live chat. Even though most broadcasts focus on a particular subject, every writer is welcome to ask anything they like at any time. Felicity and Max will do their best to give you a straight and honest answer.
