second draft scripts

Second draft scripts – what separates the professionals from the rest.

Many people who call themselves writers like to think that their first draft is already great, and just needs polishing. A professional knows that writing is really rewriting: second draft scripts and the refinement of them from there make all the difference. Let us show you slick methods to analyze, edit, rewrite, sharpen and proof your second draft scripts from start to finish.
