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. 


So check out a blogcast and then get back to writing. Remember, the journey to a successful screenplay begins with a single keystroke.

It's Day 366, the final day of what began as a one-year odyssey to sell a screenplay. It is a bittersweet day. On the positive side, I completed the rewrites (more or less) on The Devil's Tramping Ground. It has been a massive rewriting effort with 60 new pages in thre...

It's Day 363 and I made my weekend deadline of completing The Devil's Tramping Ground. But to throw a little water on the celebration, it is by no means finished. Still, let's gloat just a little.

After the terrible month that was July - only two pages written - and a r...

So I over estimated what I could achieve in two days. Again. I had hoped to hit 30 pages by the time the next Rewrites workshop rolled around. I made 15. I actually did about 20 pages of work, but the final count when all was said and done was 15 completed pages. I'd l...

The long drought is over. I pulled off 15 pages today. That's not a full 15 of new material, but there is quite a bit of new and/or rewritten stuff and some major restructuring to get this section to work. The actual page count of the script only went up by one page to...

At long last, screenwriting! It wasn't much in terms of page count, only about 3 new pages, but there was a considerable amount of restructuring work on the first 60 pages of The Devil's Tramping Ground. However, after trying out some new structure, I ultimately return...

Six weeks. That's how long it has been since my last post. That's a lot of time with which one could get a lot of writing done, and I can confidently say I have managed two (2) whole pages in that lengthy expanse. Two whole pages.

Let me first explain that I can't belie...
