Here are some of the best screenwriting resources on the web that you may not know about:
- Scriptshadow. If you haven’t spent a gratuitous amount of hours on this blog, you’re at a serious disadvantage. Carson Reeves offers a slew of practical, oft-overlooked advice as he reviews hot new scripts in Hollywood. Every Friday is “Amateur Friday,” where a new writer’s script is thoughtfully reviewed by Carson and the Scriptshadow community.
