I write in my spare time for the fun of it. I've lately had an interest for scripts and I've wanted to write one myself and learn how they work. I downloaded the screenwriter demo and tried it. I like it but I don't know how the hole proces of writing a script is. What is INT, EXT etc. I need a complete guide for complete dummies on how scripts are writting. I've tried google but I can't find anything.

The best way I learnt to write scripts is to read other scripts.

http://www.dailyscript.com is a great resource for that.

Another great site is www.wordplayer.com which has a ton of articles about the craft. The guys who run it have written some excellent scripts including "Aladdin," "The Mask of Zorrow," "Shrek" and "Pirates of the Caribbean," so you'll definately get some good advice there.
