    Do any of you write screenplays or scripts for TV or Movies professionally or just for enjoyment?

    I write a lot but i'd like to start a screenplay. I'm not looking to make a movie, just something for my own enjoyment. And i guess if its an exceptional script i wouldn't mind accepting a tremendous amount of money to make it into a movie. :D

    Anyways does anybody have any tips? Forums? Websites I could check out? Books I could read?

    I dunno....maybe you could check out movies that won 'best screenplay' or something. They'll probably help give a feel for how it's done, and there are websites which have entire scripts for movies for free. Try googling that.

    But in my opininon, 'best screenplay' doesn't suggest anything. 'Clueless' by Amy Heckerling won that award but that movie's crap. :p

    My aunt has. She wrote an X-files screen play a few years back because she was a big fan (Had never written screenplays, just picked up a book and wrote one). Then she wrote the screen play for a movie that she has since made into an independant film.

    Screenplay by Syd Field and How To Make A Good Script Great by Linda Seger. You can buy screenplays at your local bookstore in the film section as well.
