Writing the script is the next step in this process. You have created the storyline or idea. You have the characters names for your story and created the setting. You might be confused or thinking how do I actually start the script, don’t worry I will help. When I was writing my script I used a software called Celtex. It’s for scriptwriting and other production work. It made formatting the script very easy for me and I advise you to use it. When it comes to writing stories or scripts they follow what is called Freytag’s Pyramid. There are five parts to the Freytag’s Pyramid.
The first part of the of Freytag’s pyramid is the Exposition. The Exposition is the introduction to the story. When writing your Exposition you want to introduce characters, settings, and any background information. You might think it is very hard to create an Exposition, so let me help you break it down. First you want to make sure you introduce all your main characters and give physical description of them when introducing them. This is so the reader can picture what they look like in their head.
I’m the next blog will be discussing about what you should do following the Exposition. If you have any questions you can leave a comment or send me an email. Im sharing a link for extra help on how to format your script.
