    Michael Hauge is one of the top screenwriting consultants in Hollywood. If you’re interested in becoming a screenwriter or just curious about the process professional Hollywood screenwriters go through, this is the book for you. It’s considered an industry standard by many of the top film schools in New York & L.A. In clear and simple language, Hauge lays out the basic fundamentals of screenwriting. This is a great book for both the novice screenwriter as well as the working professional looking to reacquaint themselves with the fundamentals of screenwriting.

    This was fortunately one of the first books I started with and it was a dandy. Much better than Syd Field and several of the other starting books. Hague remains upbeat (something you need to break in to screenwriting) and covers all the main points and questions for starting out. Even more important, he talks about why you should and should not be doing it and living a good life.

    When you’re read for something intermediate, check out Armer’s WRITING THE SCREENPLAY and Thom’s THE BIG DEAL (about spec scripts that sold in the last decade or so).

    And, for advanced techniques go to: Lagos Egri’s THE ART OF DRAMATIC WRITING (more for plays but it does apply) and McKee’s STORY . . . and, of course, the superlative WORDPLAYER.COM with free articles by two working screenwriters . .. Ted Elliot and Terry Rossio.
