What book/tip suggestions can one offer for a beginner who's interested in writing a screenplay?


I actually have written 1 screenplay, but I want to start from the beginning again. I really struggled with it. I'm interested in getting into the field of being a screenwriter and need as much advise and suggestions as possible. I have downloaded some screenplays off the internet for real movies and that has helped. It was more entertaining than anything else. But I think I still need help in putting all the pieces together and how to plot/plan it all out. Any advice at all would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you for the feedback. 3 years later, I've written 7 features, 11 shorts & filmed 1 of my shorts lol But my 1st screenplay was a psychological thriller from a book i wrote. script is 105 pages. I agree doing has led me to where I am now :)
