Unlikely writing a novel, screenwriting is a collaborative process. As such the people who do it are much more like me. I love to talk and socialize and the screenwriting community seems like a lot of fun. It seems more my type of community than the novelist community. Screenwriting seems like people have a lot of passion for the subject and enjoy talking about it in a way I haven’t see with the novelist community.
I still have a novel I’m interested in writing, but the screenplay concept I have in my head seems to have picked up some creative steam lately. But, as I keep saying, the urgent need is for me to buy a professional digital camera. But that takes time, so working on a screenplay is something I can do while I wait.
So, I’m not saying anything will come of my sudden renewed interest in screenwriting, but the concept I’ve come up with leans itself to a cinematic representation, so I’m running with it as long and as far as I can. But I just don’t know. I don’t know how long this will last.
I really, really need to just save up the money for a camera and work towards that goal, but I’m in general a creatively restless person so I while I wait for the camera, I have to do something creative. Ideally, I will bounce back and forth between a novel and a screenplay. But we’ll see.
