Screenwriting Made Easy

Getting your movie written is a game.
The object of a game is to win.
One way to win is cheat.

Among other unscrupulous tricks you can play
on yourself - Talk the story into a voice
recorder. Play all the different voices and
characters yourself.

Here am I, (and a string quartet), doing exactly that.
That's how I wrote the funeral scene for my western
comedy feature "Surreal West." Not much editing,
This is how it plays in the script, and the movie.
