Do I need special software to write a screenplay?

Not at all, you can start with paper and pen(cil) and just let the ideas flow. Having said that, there are a number of software packages out there that will take the guesswork out of what format, font or margins to use so you can just concentrate on the story. Try out a few and see what you like. Examples are Final Draft, Scrivener, CeltX, or you can even turn Microsoft Word into a screenwriting program.
