* Look for the people who tell stories all the time. You'll soon start spotting them everywhere, from newspapers to snatches of overhead conversation. * Ask yourself what your story is. * Get into the habit of writing. You're short time, try writing little but often. * Overwrite, then cut. * Do whatever works for you. * Give your main character obstacles to overcome. * What are your characters' wants and objectives? * Make your character extraordinary or larger than life in some way. * Read your play out loud to yourself. * Don't send script out immediately.
