I was just curious as to how many of you writers do treatments for

your sripts before you write them. I just recently had to write one

myself but the script was already finished. I’m kinda thinking about

writing more of them just to flesh out my ideas but it kinda slows

down the whole proccess, ya know.

Yeah I know what you mean I do the exact same thing

save treatments for when you want to market your screenplay, just have a notebook and pen to flesh ideas out

That’s pretty much what I do. I write the treatment in a notebook

before I start the actual script.

what is a treatment actually? tha outline?

Yeah. It’s like each scene get’s a paragraph.
