Writing includes different forms such as novels, stories, articles, screenplay, scripts, and many others. A script acts as a blueprint for videos. Scripts are chronological run-downs of scenes, shots, actions and dialogues. Screenwriters use software for writing scripts. Some of the famous softwares are Celtx, Final Draft, and Zhura. These writers follow a specific format, but there can be variations depending on factors like type, destination, origin, and house style. Screenwriters may adapt screenplays from a book, short story, or other written work. They may even compose scripts themselves with inputs from directors or producers.
