Rising Action

Now we are moving on to the next part in Freytag’s Pyramid. The Rising Action leads up to the most important step, which is the Climax. Rising action is defined as a series of events that build up to the Climax. That basically means that the small problems or events in the story will build up to them major problem in the story. When I wrote my script, I basically took my idea and broke it down into smaller problems or events for my characters. This helped me write my Rising Action part of my story with easy. It was an organized way for me to write the Rising Action and lead up to the Climax.

Identify three or four smaller problems for your story to write your Rising Action. The most important thing is that you have to make sure all parts of the Rising Action play a part leading up to the big problem. When I wrote my script, my Rising Action was choices that my character took in the story. The Rising Action is just a pathway leading up to the Climax. I want you to work on writing your Rising Action and making sure it’s connecting the story line. The next post we will be discussing the Climax. Like always leave a comment or email me with any questions that you have.

Now That The Expostion Is Done

By this time you have written the first part of your script that is called the Exposition. Initially when I was writing my script I decided to save  all the editing and grammar checks for the end of the script. I discovered this wasn’t a good idea. I had a lot of errors and it became confusing as a result. I realized that I should have set up periods of times to do my editing while I was writing. It would have been easier and created a more organized approach. So to make it simpler for you I want you to proofread the Exposition that you just wrote. You will thank me later when the script is done, trust me.

Proofreading is very important. Having someone else proofread for you will help identify your mistakes and make sure that your writing is clear and concise. For some writing using correct grammar can be difficult and takes a very organized approach. I have personally struggled with grammar and still struggle with grammar till this day. That’s why I always ask for help proofreading my work. Don’t be embarrassed and ask somebody to proofread your work. If you ever want some practice writing you can always go on YouTube to look at grammar lessons. Many feel these videos are very helpful. I still watch these videos and practice everyday.  Make sure you edit and proofread your Exposition before the next post. The next post will be talking about the Rising Action and describing what that is. Like always you can comment or email me with questions. You can always share my post on your own social media.

Part 1 of Writing the Script

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.

Now That You Have The Idea

. Now that you have the idea for your script it is time to start developing parts of your story. You might have trouble naming characters or thinking of settings for your story. Let me help you figure that important information out. Now it’s time to discuss how many characters you want and where the settings of the story will take place.  When I wrote my script I limited the characters in my story to five. Having a lot of characters can be hard because you need to create speaking parts for all of them in the script. You want to make sure every character is unique and has different qualities. I identified my characters with names of my friends and random names that I just put together just in case you were wondering how I came up with my character names.

When it comes to writing a script you want to be very specific.  You might have a hard time trying to narrow down your setting. Think of places you have been and have knowledge of the surrounding area you may use in your setting. When I wrote my script my main setting was Philadelphia and I used specific places in Philadelphia such as Center City, Society Hill, and Fishtown. This part of the process should not take you that long to create. The next blog will talk about starting the actual script. If you have any questions you can comment or email and I will gladly help you.

Getting Started

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.
