Writers on the Storm

FADE IN: "The easiest thing to do on Earth is not write," Academy-Award winning screenwriter William Goldman once said, and boy, was he right (this post, for example, was due last Friday). And while this observation may seem obvious to many, it nonetheless resonates with anyone who’s ever stared down at the dreaded blank page. Enter Amazon. Storybuilder is a new tool designed to get your great movie idea out of your head and onto the page. The free service helps screenwriters map out their future blockbuster scripts by providing a simple way to collect ideas, notes, images and tons more. By laying out virtual index cards onto a virtual cork-board, aspiring moviemakers can easily sequence ideas for scenes while also building and developing a narrative. Accessible via desktop, tablet or phone, you'll be able to add to your project whenever inspiration hits. FADE OUT. — Adam Albright-Hanna
