Treefort 2021, Boise Idaho — There are no two identical writers, in their styles, in their processes, in their preparations, in their outcomes. In "Writing For the Screen", four writers discussed their author lives and their different routines for creating their best works.
For some, three hours a day is a good day's work. One writer focuses on his writing three times a day for that amount of time, taking time in between to rest or do other tasks. Another writer finds they do their best work in the middle of the night.

As for progress, each felt different then the others. It was either page after page of narrative, or even jotting down notes on a notepad or on their phones. Someone even believed sentences didn't matter as long as the story was good. However, there was one thing they could all agree on.
"As a young writer," one of them said, "I asked myself, 'what is the right way to write something?' And in the end, a script or any piece of writing needs to be clear and communicative." Everyone's process is unique, and that journey towards creating something unique is the foundation of a writer's work.
