Creating Action In Your Screenplay
For screenwriters, it's extremely challenging to create a series of logical and
compelling actions for characters in a screenplay. It's easy to reach an impasse where you can't decide what the protagonist (hero) in your story should do next.
Fortunately, the solution to this
problem involves using information that is easy to gather: your protagonist's goal. To determine what his goal will
be, ask yourself what he wants to do, get, or achieve. You should ask this question
while writing a character biography about him.
Once you have defined your main character's goal, you can map out a series of actions he must take to achieve that goal. Keep in mind that the antagonist
(villain) in your screenplay will create obstacles for your hero.
