The ScriptCOACH™

The ScriptCOACH™ concept has been postponed indefinitely. We hope to bring it back to life in the near future.

We have kept this page on the website for your information. If you are interested in this service, please let us know!


Let me ask you a question.

What's the single biggest problem facing the writer? What's the one thing -- above all else -- that prevents you from getting your script written?

Is it that you don't understand the craft? Well, maybe. But that's not the biggest reason.

Is it your characters? Your dialogue? Your concept? Your structure? ...Yeah, often it's any combination of these things. But that's still not the big one.

Wanna know what it is? The single biggest killer of screenplays?

It's this: Procrastination.

After two years, nearly 40 workshops, and around 400 workshop participants, I discovered a sad fact about the screenwriting world. Most new writers simply give up before they've even begun.

And if you know me from the workshops, you know that I don't want you to give up!

I've spent the past two years trying to get emerging writers fired up about screenwriting. I've offered weekend workshops, eight-week workshops, one-off workshops, evaluations, software...

...and still you give up!

Well, it's time to change all that.

I want you to write!

That's why I'm developing a completely new concept in the world of screenwriting. I call it The ScriptCOACH™.

It's a simple concept, really.

Every month, you'll receive a new audio CD. In it, I'm going to do everything I can to get you back to the keyboard, and writing your screenplay!

We'll dig deep into the secrets and techniques of screenwriting. We'll laugh and share new discoveries. We'll uncover specific tips and tricks to help you along. We'll energize and excite you, and before the the CD's finished, you can't wait to get back to your screenplay!

And we'll even go one step further -- we'll kill procrastination! We'll make sure you're writing every single month! And we'll eliminate every excuse you've got for putting it off 'til tomorrow!

Books are great, and written information is fine and helpful. I'm a believer in reading everything you can!

But human beings get fired up most by other human beings -- human contact!

My greatest frustration has been that after a weekend workshop is finished, my contact with you is usually over. And without that constant nudge, you let everything you've learned slip away!

Well not anymore! Not when you've got the ScriptCOACH™.

If you'll join me on this monthly audio series, I'll take my job very seriously. I'll entertain you, prod you, poke you, and chat with you. I'll plead with you to write, and give you specific ideas and techniques to ensure that you do!

And even if you've never met me, or you participate in workshops with other members of my team, I'm sure you'll find the passion, energy and enthusiasm of the ScriptCOACH™ to be exactly what you need to get writing, now!

I call it the ScriptCOACH™ because that's what it's designed to be. Your Coach.

So join me. And let's get some killer screenplays written!
