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.

Wow, I was tired today. The late night on Monday and the early day on Tuesday has worn me out. Instead of going to bed last night, I pulled out the third act of Come Ups and started reading. I probably should have gone to bed. I discovered that I have a stronger endin...

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...

A light day on writing new material, but I did do some rewriting on the latest episode of Everyday Clowns. I was hoping to trim it down a bit but ended up adding a page, bringing it to a total of 17 pages. That's really long for a webisode, and I may have to rethink t...
