Never fear the blank page again! It doesn’t matter if you write fiction, plays or screenplays: Brooke Berman’s 9-week program will take you from nothing to an actual, workable, wonderfully imperfect first draft. 

Find a compelling theme. Develop interesting, believable characters. Identify the perfect setting. Create the conflict that will drive the story. Build the right structure. And put all this great stuff together into your first draft!
