The way that I work is that I write everything in index cards, all scenes, and then I write a sentence for each scene, and then I put it up on a wall in terms of how the film plays out, and I just sit and stare at it, to see if I could find any problems in the structure. Nothing to do with dialogue, because that’s secondary, that always comes later for me. It’s all about the structure of the story, and it gives me the ability to just basically play the movie in my head.
