From Screenplay to Novel

Still riding the wave of inspiration from the SCBWI Western Washington Annual Conference last weekend. I’m reading and writing. I’m reading the young adult novel, North of Beautiful by Justina Chen Headley. I find it easy to steal away on the hammock with this wonderful book.

I working on a rough draft from a screenplay I wrote last winter. The process of going from screenplay to prose is interesting and, at times, challenging. Screenplay writing is so direct and immediate. The best part about this process is the plot and scenes are already worked out. I know how the story moves forward. I’m working on fleshing out the details and getting to know the characters.
