Creating Script » Create Blanks
Create a blank space (in minutes) wherever a scene has still to be developed.
Creating a story is a disorganized process. Ideas come out of order. Consequently, the creative process produces holes in the narrative.
Let’s say that the screenwriter imagined a scene for beginning a Turning Point in the 1st Act, but still doesn’t know how to build a bridge to connect the two scenes.
The Blank Scene fills this hole and lets the screenwriter clearly see what still has to be done.
The Blank Scene is only visible when you are working in a Time view.

Below, we have introduced a 5 minute Blank Scene in the script.
