Q. Can you recommend a good class in LA or a book that will help me craft a solid spec script. It seems like everyone just seems to KNOW how to write a spec and all the books and articles I read say vaguely, write a spec and make sure you know the shows. Any ideas? Based on a short I wrote and some contacts I've made since moving to LA, I was given the opportunity to submit samples for some new shows in development. It would have been so much more beneficial if I had actually had a tv script.
Yes, it would, woudn't it?
Fortunately, my new book, Crafty TV Writing
goes into great depth and detail on how to write a spec. It comes out in two weeks. You can order it today!
Second, I have posted about the question in this blog; links are in my Blog Fu
. Check out the sections on springboards and spec scripts.
Third, other bloggers have touched on the subject, in particular Jane Espenson
, though not in an organized way. For organized thinking, buy my book!

Thanks Alex! I will definitely order your book! I just read William Goldbergs books and while it was helpful with general questions, I'm hoping (and pretty sure) you get down to the nitty gritty. Thanks again.
I cannot wait for your book. Seriously, it feels like I've been waiting forever.
