Writer's Survival--Trust Your Gut: "What’s the formula for writing a screenplay? Trusting your gut. Yes, you read that correctly. It’s not a beat sheet, a series of sequences, or a story map. Writing all comes down to you being an effective storyteller. Read scripts, understand what the experts are talking about when they speak of 'formula,' watch movies, but the most important thing you can do is to sit your ass in the chair, write it all down, and trust your gut."
