The applicant replied that to a junior he would tell him the subsequent things. The one keyword a junior script developer must keep in mind is to “keep writing” always. To set clear goals and keep writing scripts as practice. To realize that the screenplay should bring a strong emotional connect with the onlooker and to strive towards that emotional connect (Ferguson, 2009). The best screenwriters are those people who derive characters from the people that they have encountered. “Target your brand, who you are as a writer, and follow other writers and directors and producers’ work that’s similar to yours” (Knittel, 2014). Combining personal experience in the script would make the script more relatable. The junior scriptwriter must keep in mind that one day their hard works will be appreciated. This industry has a lot of competition and there are a lot of naysayers. The best place for a junior scriptwriter is to start work in short films and experiment in the cinema. Gain experience and not repeat the mistakes they made. Finally the script writer concluded that Scriptwriting is only for the people who are passionate about it. It can only prove successful in the long run and this career is not for people looking for quick easy money.
