"The more you read, the more professional writers’ techniques you’ll absorb into your own writing style. There are many screenwriting books, courses and seminars out there on how to master the craft, but the best screenplays contain all you need to know right there on the page."

"Professional screenplays sometimes contain a few of those naughty camera angles you’ve probably been told by a script coverage service never ever to include in your script. But bear in mind that a produced screenplay was very often written by an established writer who, having learned all the rules, is now in a position to break them. As an aspiring screenwriter you’re not quite there yet, and so you don’t want to jeopardize a picky reader’s opinion of your work by doing something like leaving out sluglines just yet. The reader may think it’s a rookie mistake rather than a conscious stylistic decision."

"When it comes to dialogue, the biggest flaw in spec screenplays is that characters often speak in a robotic, expository way for the benefit of the audience, rather than how real people would naturally talk to each other. Reading produced screenplays, however, will help kill a tendency to write “on-the-nose” dialogue, as you absorb how pro screenwriters subtly reveal information to the audience."
