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.

Much of today was spent travelling across the country, making my way from sunny southern California to sunny southern Florida. The only white I’ll be seeing this Christmas will be on the white sand beaches of the Gulf of Mexico. While I’ll be spending most of the holid...

I thought I would have a finished draft of Come Ups completed this weekend, or at least a draft very close to finished. It seems, however, that I can't leave well enough alone. Instead of moving on to the second half of the script, I went back over my changes leading...

Today was better than yesterday. I still had to drag myself to the keyboard, but I managed 6-7 productive hours and made it to the halfway point. I certainly felt better about re-entering the Come Ups world. I started with the new Shep/Cody scene, which I had given a b...

Wow, talk about approaching a script with fresh eyes. I haven't looked at the script for Come Ups in about 40 days. I haven't done any creative writing in about 25 days. As a result, I had some problems easing myelf back into the writing mode. Frankly, I just didn't w...

Hi, and welcome back to the Screenwriter’s Journey. It’s been 25 days since my last post. Essentially, a month has gone by, and, unfortunately, I have little to show for it.  My big push was to write 25,000 words for NaNoWriMo in November. To say I fell short would be...
