Hello, my name is Radu. I am a writer/screenwriter, i am 22 years old, I am in my third year of law school and I live in Romania's capital city Bucharest. My dilemma is this: Writing OR Screenwriting. Let me elaborate: I wrote and re wrote one script (120 pages) and half of a second script (same length) like everyone i was terrible at the beginning ( my first, first draft was 220 pages long and I didn't see anything wrong with it at that point =)) ) but over the years, by reading materials and attending webinars, I got better, a lot better, and I think now with enough time I could write pretty good script. The reason I don't is every time i sit and begin writing I am bombarded by the thought "Wouldn't this time be better spent writing / learning how to write a novel" I always was more of a movie person than a bookworm, but recently my passion for reading has grown a bit. I am familiar to the answer "Don't bother yourself with this, just write what you love most" I tend to think writing novels or short stories would be more fun due to the fact that I am allowed more freedom with the story. But just putting the screenwriting aside, a craft I was getting better and better at, is not a decision I should take without consideration if I want to eventually become a known and respected writer and screenwriter ( and I do want that). So, is it a mistake to think about how this decision might affect my goal? Is it recommended or possible, in general, for someone to craft his skills in both screenwriting and writing, while also going through law school? Is it a good idea, since I don't feel I read enough books to begin with, to focus on writing screenplays for now and maybe switch to writing novels when the books I read have grown in number? I think this last idea might be my best option. Any opinion, answer or recommendation would be greatly appreciated. This question has haunted me for long enough, stoping me from enjoying my creative process, making it hard for me to relax and even, in part, distracting me from making connections on stage 32. I ask you all to help me terminate this dilemma and if you need any more info, just let me know. Thank you!
