If you are winging it, time to get some info on playwriting.

If you are winging it, it is like being being a non-swimmer, and then being thrown into the deep end of a swimming pool with no Life Preserver!

Knowledge is all in any endeavor.

So here are some suggestions for you:

The Granddaddy of all writing books, and is a must read is "The Poetics" by Aristotle.

Read plays and go see plays.

Then there are:

You can use the library. However, if buy the books, you can mark them up. Underline and make notes.

A note: Check your spelling. Never trust "Spell Check."
