This review is from: How To Write Great Screenplays: And Get Them into Production (Paperback)
Linda James has the knack of making difficult projects (like writing a play for TV) seem perfectly simple and straight forward. She obviously knows her subject well and can write clear concise guidelines for the novice playwright to follow. If you can paint-by-numbers you can follow Linda's instructions. The story and the talent to create a great play have to come from yourself, but Linda's blueprint for turning your baby into an exciting script that might catch the eye of a production team are all contained in the pages of this super book. A few pounds invested in this superb guide to writing screenplays could be the turning point in the fortunes of a budding screenwriter. Add to that her immence enthusiasm which literally bursts from the pages. If playwriting for film or television is your ambition, with Linda's guidance and your talent you can hardly fail.
