Making Of

A new-ish venture from America, Making Of goes behind the scenes to talk to people in the film industry who don't normally get much attention. Like screenwriters.

Here's Melissa Rosenberg on adapting Stephenie Meyers' Twilight books.

There are also regular blog posts, such as this one by screenwriter Don Roos.
If you're trying to write a screenplay, use a Kitchen Timer!

The principle of Kitchen Timer is that every writer deserves a definite and do-able way of being and feeling successful every day. To do this, we learn to judge ourselves on behavior rather than content. (We leave content to our unconscious; experience will teach us to trust that.) We set up a goal for ourselves as writers which is easy, measurable, free of anxiety, and fail-proof, because everyone can sit, and an hour will always pass.
