It’s time for a change when everything you do turns out wrong. Tarcia Lucas faced this realization when she found herself in jail for attempting to murder her boyfriend, Kentee. He was the man she vowed to keep come hell or high water, but for one hot minute, she wanted him dead. Loving him changed her into someone she didn’t want to be: A Needy Bitch.
Chauncey Deveraux wasn’t the brightest crayon in the box, but he knew how to color inside the lines. He could paint pictures in your head so vivid, you’d be hard pressed not to believe them. But painting a picture is only as good as it’s canvas, and Chauncey’s is worn out. Now he’s painting murals on the walls of the Dekalb County Jail.
Some would call it fate that their paths crossed. Both were riding the rails of destruction. Sheer happenstance might have placed Chauncey and Tarcia in the same place. But I don’t believe in chance! When you mix greed, envy, jealousy and lust you have a perfect recipe for disaster. Who’s trippin’ now is a fight for power and love lies in the balance. Only time will tell which one will prevail.

A screenplay is made up of a lot of different pieces: acts, sequences, scenes, etc. Think of them as multi-sized blocks that you must stack, tear down, rearrange, and throw away until what you have before you looks something like a story. But before you can enjoy the tedious task of formation, you have to create these pieces, or blocks, from scratch. To help with this, screenwriter and frequent Tim Burton collaborator, John August (Big Fish, Corpse Bride), whose blog you should be reading religiously, released a handy infographic/PDF of his popular post “How to Write a Scene” that gives screenwriters an easy checklist of 11 bullet points that helps guide them through the process.
