Welcome to the Blog! This is the heart of our journey into selling a screenplay. Here you will find daily postings about the projects I am currently writing, rewriting and rewriting again. I'll explain my process and and the mechanics of screenwriting, incorporating all revisions into the samples located on the Projects page. But in addition to the writing, we'll delve into the business side of screenwriting and unravel the mysteries of writing query letters and developing pitches. Then when it's all put together, we'll set our marketing plan into action and see what kind of response we get. Hopefully, it won't necessitate a trip back to the drawing board.


But the blog isn't all work and no play. I'll be taking you to film festivals, workshops and pitch fests for an insider's looks at all the action behind the scenes. If you haven't attended one of these events in the past, this will be a good opportunity for you to understand how they work and what to expect when you get there. And you are going to attend, right?  You're on a journey, after all.


The blog will also feature interviews with fellow screenwriters, actors, directors and producers, giving you valuable insight into what they've experienced and what they expect when working with writers. The blog will be an indispensible font of information for you as you begin the journey to sell your own screenplay. You can begin that journey right now by subscribing to the blog using the form below.












You can also follow The Screenwriter's Journey on Twitter (William Gilmore #ScriptJourney), Facebook (The Screenwriter's Journey) and YouTube (The Screenwriter's Journey) using the links at the bottom of this page.

It’s been about six weeks since my last post, and a lot has happened in the intervening time. I completed the Inside the Room workshop, did a script query blast, worked the Dances With Films film Festival, wrapped up the season at Tuesdays@9, attended the IAWTV worksho...

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts’ (BAFTA) recent decision to alter how it bestows its highest honors to filmmakers, based on matters of diversity, has opened the proverbial can of worms within the film industry. If you somehow missed out on the news, BAF...

I am now well into the latter half of the second act of Come Ups. I managed a substantial change to the Reydel/Hiram confrontation scene that comes out of the midpoint by eliminating the rape sequence. It has always been an awkward scene, and I have held onto it primar...

Let me state up front that my math sucks. I've accomplished 42 pages of material so far this month, not 52 as stated in the video. Even so, that puts me well above my minimum daily average for the month, but still about 10 pages short of the goals that I set out for m...

Today was a busy, full day of activity. After a late night of reviewing the work I did on Come Ups, I rose early to do some rewrites on the latest Everyday Clowns episode to prep it for a reading tonight at the IAWTV writer's workshop. I was hoping to cut it down a bi...
