The ‘I am a Hack’ contest!
By Scott Berman
In writing, hack tends to be a dirty word. It shouldn’t be. In fact, it’s a badge of honor. Even accomplished screenwriters who have had their work optioned or produced think of themselves as Hacks.
A Hack is a writer who understands how truly difficult it is to write a screenplay.
A Hack knows that the first draft always sucks, and is only ever a starting point.
A Hack knows there is always room for improvement in their writing.
A Hack hacks away at making their script better. That is what makes a hack, a Hack.
That’s why we published Screenwriting Tips, You Hack. In the form of useful tips, it gives you practical advice all aimed at making you a better screenwriter.
With that in mind, participate in the ‘I am a Hack’ contest! Simply tweet the following, and you will automatically be entered to win $100 worth of Focal Press books:
