Write fast.

I'm not the first person to suggest that writing fast creates an energy within you. If you're the kind of person who wants to celebrate if you've written one page a day, hold off the margaritas until you've manage to churn our 4 pages. Or 5.

The more pages you get each day, even if they aren't necessarily "good" pages, will get you closer to your primary destination which is to have a completed first draft.

And even if your first draft is shaky, it's the first lynchpin of the writing process because it leads into the most important lynchpin: the rewrite.

Or I should say "rewrites." But more about that later.

In my classes my students hear me say these words: "Completion is everything." Nobody can make a film with an unfinished script.

So by concentrating every day, by getting out at least 4-5 pages every day and you will have a first draft of your screenplay in three-four weeks, which means than you can (A) see what you've written and (B) get a pretty good idea of what works and what doesn't.

What doesn't work you cut. What works you keep. What needs to be fixed, you fix.
