I heard this idea from producer Larry Gordon about how to knock out a script: Write one page per day. Think about it — at one page per day, in 4 months you’ve generated a 120 pages. So if you take this approach:
* 1 month: Research, brainstorming, character development, plotting
* 4 months: Writing (1 page per day)
* 1 month: Rewrite and final edit
Which means you can crank out 2 full-length screenplays per year — by writing just one page per day.
