With screenwriting it’s sometimes all too easy to get sucked into a website wormhole and end up reading about screenwriting more than actually doing it. The script writing blogs below, however, should all be bookmarked immediately!


John August, writer of Go, Charlie’s Angels and Big Fish has created probably the best free screenwriting blog for screenwriters on the web. Type in any question about screenwriting in the search bar and there’s your answer.


As he says on his site: “The advice and rantings of a Hollywood scriptreader, tired of seeing screenwriters make the same mistakes, saving the world from bad screenwriting, one script at a time.” One of the original and best screenwriting blogs online.


Great screenplay blog operated by The Black List, written by Hollywood screenwriter Scott Myers. In his own words: “I’ve been an online instructor through UCLA Extension Writer’s Program since 2002.

This blog is largely in response to students who wanted to continue our conversations about the creative process. I offer it as a resource to them and any other aspiring writer, especially those interested in screenwriting and the magic of movies.”


If you’re writing a romantic comedy, you definitely need to check out this screenwriting blog from a leading Hollywood script consultant, Billy Mernit. “The delights and torments of romance (funny or not) as portrayed in the movies and experienced in so-called real life, foibles of the writing craft, and other topics apropos.”


Unfortunately, the Mystery Man no longer writes on this site, but it has to be one of the best resources on how to write a screenplay to be found anywhere online.


The ultimate round-up of the best screenwriting blog posts from around the globe. Simply type in whatever subject you want some info on, and you’ll be presented with a hand-picked list of all the best blog posts ever written about it. Warning: you can get lost reading for hours on this site.


Pirates of the Caribbean writers, Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio, host a forum and screenplay blog in which they and other Hollywood screenwriters answer all your questions on every aspect of the craft of writing.

    Restaurants in a local area have different menu items with each restaurant. Why not have each movie theater in a local area each have their own set of currently showing films like restaurants in an local area have their own set menu items?
