Not everyone is cut to be a web video scriptwriter and this is the truth we should learn to deal with. No matter how grand a production is, it won’t matter unless there’s a well-crafted script to work on in the first place. If you’re a scriptwriter- wannabe but uncertain on whether you truly have what it takes for the job, then you must take this entry seriously. Here we will enumerate some of the qualities a good web video scriptwriter should have.
Basic writing skill—You may be raising an eyebrow on this. Of course you should have the basic writing skill! However, this isn’t true in everyone who aims to be a scriptwriter. Some people just think that it’s cool to be nerdy and weird so they want to be a writer. If you’re one of these folks, then think about it one more time. Any scriptwriter must be able to write clearly and concisely. He or she must have an above-average command of the language. If you don’t have it, then you got some serious work to do.
Interest in diverse topics—As a writer, you won’t be able to choose the topic you’re going to work on all the time. There will be instances when the boss or the circumstance would ask you to work on something you’re not very familiar with or fond of. It would help if you’re naturally curious about things because it can give you practical insights on all sorts of subjects.
