Transcript EURO: Development Process, and USA: Writer's Time Management June 26, 2011


Scriptchat TOPIC:
EURO: Inside the Development Process
USA: How to get from FADE IN to FADE OUT – Time Management for Writers

Every once in a while, scheduling purposes require us to have different topics at EURO and USA, but have no fear, at some point, both sides of the pond will cover it all. In the meantime, you have the transcript to get a head start. Mina led the EURO crows through the road to development, and the USA shared tips on how we each get our words on the page. While our processes are different, our struggles are universal. We hope you pick up some tips to get your writing moving forward consistently. Enjoy! @jeannevb
