screenplay A mess of notes - organize to acts

Lots of notes, lots of other things going on, besides writing.

Putting to acts / format.

make no mistake, I love the content, the ideas.

It has to flow into a story, elements are only just that, and if they can’t “band” they have no substance right?

This, as I have said is lowest priority for me currently due to expenses (that ol rent bill), but a high priority as a passion.

scribbling notes and putting to acts.

what you got?

Are you asking the best way to do that in a quick way?
Or just venting? (nothing wrong with that!)

I'm big on outlining.
I find it easier to move things around within an outline rather than in an actual screenplay .

My best ideas are from diffuse thinking...to organize into acts is...well what I am looking for I guess.

Focused thinking sucks IMO. But need it for formatting.

Sometimes physical separation helps. Writing things with pen on actual index cards and laying them out. It can help you visualize and put things in order. Like building a house with blocks.
