StoryDraft $1500 Order StoryDraft 
Edit & Rewrite

From rough idea or rough draft
to a smooth professional script.

It's like having StoryPros as your collaborator!  Unlike a StoryPolish, we may change or drop characters, shuffle scenes, and enhance plot points — all to find and bring out your script's full potential. You tell us what you want out of your story, and we deliver it to you.

We will also perform thematic tuning, increase script integration and unity, and upgrade your script overall to help it perform better in the marketplace. 

This editorial service does not affect authorship in any way — you retain sole authorship credit and all rights to your material.

Outline Development

To have a good body, you need good bone structure— and the same goes for screenplays!

We take your story and abstract it to its essential beats. We collect these into an easy-to-read step-outline that shows the content and function of each scene.

We'll then create an alternate set of beats more in line with the best tone, flow, and dramatic structure of a script like yours. Use this new beat sheet to tune and optimize your script, and zero in on the story you want to tell.

Currently we are offering this service for screenplays, existing outlines...even rough concepts!

The StoryBones service includes e-mail consultation to help fine-tune your step-outline to your needs. Also includes a follow-up analysis (after your next draft) for no extra charge.

- StoryBones will add scenes you need, and remove scenes you don't need.
- StoryBones will sharpen the action and focus the plot.
- StoryBones will eliminate unproductive drafts and speed you toward completion.
- StoryBones will make your next draft easy and fun to write!
