Cutting to the core of what makes a good story great is a gift! And it’s a gift screenwriting mentor Chris Soth shares with his menthes and anyone smart enough to pick-up his book: “Million-Dollar Screenwriting: The Mini-Movie Method” available on Amazon.
Chris also sat down with Screenwriters Beat: Strategy Sessions to dish about his first sale — the movie “Firestorm” — and some of the mistakes he made. He also has some great advice on how to write and network your script to make your first sale or your next screenplay sale.
After a little break, Screenwriters Beat is back with two new episodes. Check them out at the links below — and happy writing!
Episode #11 – Part 1 – Pump Up Your Screenwriting Career
Hear what our working panel of screenwriters are doing between now and the end of the year to enhance their screenwriting careers. (Due to technical difficulties, this episode is in two parts.)

Plus, don’t miss Episode #12 – The Ins & Outs of Rewriting. Working screenwriters usually work on rewrites. And our panel shares some tips that can help with a rewrite assignment or your own spec rewrite. Follow this LINK to Ep. 12.
Our talented panel of working screenwriters have been working hard on new Screenwriters Beat episodes. We just posted Episodes 9 & 10 on YouTube. Episode #9 is about Branding yourself as a screenwriter. Should you? Check it out HERE. Episode #10 is about Genre Pitfalls. They exist and we share how to avoid some of them. Check it out HERE.
We’ve just put up a new episode of Screenwriters Beat, where working screenwriters chat about the biz. Episode 5’s main topic is Writing Partners. Do you need one? And, heck, why not?
Also covered in the episode is a fun game of Show & Tell, where our screenwriters share the screenwriting books that have meant something to them along the way. And still do!
Plus, they take an audience question about writing a script with a concise or narrative style.
