What to do first?

I just wrote the outline for my play. Now I'm confused on the difference between writing a scene and screenplay. Which do I do first? And what do you write in each? I know you have dialogue and actions, but where do those come in?

Look up a couple of example scripts online. It helps a lot. Though, since you're just starting out, don't worry about the format so much. Just get writing. You can learn the proper format and adjust the script later.

2nd what abyssinal said. Look up some scripts online. A great source is the Internet Movie Script Database at imsdb.com.

While it is true that you do need a format, don't worry about it at this point if you find it a little daunting.
