How do I improve my vomit draft?

#screenwriting #filmmaking #writing #screenplay

The pure vomit draft is close to a stream of consciousness blurted out. You take the tastiest 20 percent of the vomit and start again with that as a building block (later drafts).

To improve the vomit draft, try outlining in detail beforehand.

In the detailed outline, you go through a process of trashing bad ideas and selecting good ones. You structure them out so that the story goes somewhere. You arc the characters.

Then when you finally get to writing that first draft, it's less vomit and more intent.

In other words, use the outline as the idea generating exercise, not the first draft.
