INT. LOCATION – TIME OF DAY
CHARACTER and write action and description. Make sure your CHARACTER’S name is in all caps when introduced. You do not have to all cap in descriptions after the first time.
Write the character’s name and then the dialog. You do not need any special quotes. The program will automatically format. If you put something in parentheses, it will also automatically format.
If you put the character in bold and hit enter, it will know it’s dialog. If you hit enter for a new paragraph, it will know it’s an action or description. It will also identify certain words at the beginning of a like, such as INT. EXT and so on.
