Introduction

Thank you for taking the time to read my document. I started writing screenplays proper in 2007 and since have written 11 of them, two of which have been archived.

Writing screenplays is exhilarating because one is creating emotional worlds that one day may be realised as immersive cinematic experiences for others.

From 2012 on, I’ve written several drafts of a 600+ page novel.

I see the differences between novel-writing and screenwriting as the former being precise and the latter concise.
