Developing a topic is the first step of script writing. Brainstorming is a very important part of the process, and plays a huge part in selecting a topic. Naming a topic can be difficult but writing down potential ideas could be helpful. This can also assist with narrowing down an appropriate topic. Writing my script was difficult but following these steps helped me find my topic.
After you developed a topic getting feedback from peers is important. Their opinion can help with developing ideas to add to your topic. They will also let you know if they think your topic is a good one or if you should think of another topic.
Another thing to think about is the type of genre. You can choose a genres such as drama, comedy or combine genres like a romantic comedy. This part could be frustrating, however when you find that great idea, the other parts will come together. The next post will discuss what the plan is after you find your perfect idea. If you have any questions you can comment or email me.
