So, I have been trying to break into the movie industry and after writing a few scripts (about a thousand times each) I had a great idea for a movie. I starting writing it and realized there is no way in hell I can squeeze this into 120 pages....not even close
Enter problem: I have never considered writing a novel until today but I am not sure how to translate script writing into novel writing. I get the general principles: scripts are story telling on the Atkins diet where as a novel is a detailed oriented Odyssey. So am terrified about destroying a great idea because of a learning curb.
Has anyone done this, converted a script into a novel?? or known someone who has...Feedback would be so helpful...you never know, you might be saving yourself from reading a terrible book by intervening before the atrocity can occur.
