I don’t worry about getting the formatting perfect, i just tab for dialogue and the rest is easy to type cause i already know the format. I don’t need to sacrifice story to worry about formatting.
How would making sure you got the formatting down, sacrifice the story?
It sounds to me like when you write, you wish-wash around with the thoughts in your head and sort’ve jot down what comes to mind. Ã‚Â Which is probably the reason, “worrying about something else, takes away from the story.” Ã‚Â You could lose focus easily. Ã‚Â The thing is, good screenwriters know exactly what they want to write – and write it.
Forgive me for going a bit off topic here, but I think one of the most underlooked differences between a “not so good” screenwriter and a “good” screenwriter, is the confidence shown throughout their writing.
