What's your logline?
A logline is a sentence or two that describes what your script is about. Right off the bat, your logline should convey the premise of the story, who the main character is, what genre you’re going for, etc. Most importantly, it should make us want to read your script!
Who's your lead?
Your story should have a central conflict, which the main character needs to overcome. How that particular character tackles that specific problem is what shows us who the character really is, and what makes him or her unique. Great characters approach problems in interesting and unusual ways, which is why we love them.
Is it Dramatic?
A character wants something and must overcome an obstacle to get it. That’s drama. You’d be surprised at how many scripts don’t follow this basic rule of screenwriting. Make sure all of your scenes include drama.
