    Many writers use Final Draft...Movie Magic Screenwriter...Movie Outline


    Celtx is free software quite a few peopel use.


     


    The software is only the tool.  Make sure you write every day...even if it's only for 15-20 minutes.  It's a muscle that must be worked out.

    This thread seems a little old but I thought I'd 'revive' it somewhat.  


    We use Final Draft, however I've used Celtx in the past (free download) and I also hear good things about Trelby available on the internet to download free. By all accounts these are both user friendly and very efficient screenwriting software - and no, I'm not affiliated in any way with either... just trying to pay forward some handy info.
