Packed into a bare-boned, succinct 100 pages, Ray Morton’s A Quick Guide to Screenwriting delivers exactly what the title promises: the basics of writing a screenplay for film and television.

This is hardly the “ultimate” guide on screenwriting, but it is an easy read with simple directions and concepts. Much like other books on writing, it will not turn you into an artist overnight, but it will give you the direction needed to pull together the structure and formatting of a screenplay. There are also some do’s and don’ts as well as some advice on what it takes to turn a screenplay into a film for the big screen.

The synopsis for the book is right on the money:

“Written in smart, reader-friendly prose, A Quick Guide to Screenwriting is chock-full of the vital information, helpful tips and keen advice that will help you make your script the best it can be.”
All you need to do is add your creativity and passion. It’s still going to be a tough go, but with books like this you have a starting point at least. Future screenwriters looking for a textbook on screenwriting without struggling through an actual textbook will find this a useful, accessible resource.
