My start

Here is the story of how I became a screenwriter:

FADE IN

INT. DUTCH BEDROOM-2013

MACK, a six-foot-one woman in her mid-thirties, climbs into her bed holding her laptop. She gets comfy and opens the laptop’s lid.

WINDOWS STARTUP TUNE

MACK
Aah!

The light “hits” her in the face. She guides her cursor to the Google search bar and types :

Quentin Tarantino.

A list of links appears on the screen. She scrolls down to :

Engrossed she reads about how the famous director, producer and screenwriter used “a list” of trademarks when he wrote his first five screenplays. 

MACK
Now I get why his “Inglorious Basterds” was so different from his previous movies!
He stopped using “his list”!

She ponders, biting her lower lip.

MACK
I wonder what it is like to write a movie using his list…

Her eyes start to twinkle.

MACK
Let’s find out.

She smiles as she starts typing again. 

FADE OUT.

And FADE INTO MACK.
