I'm a total utter newbie to screenwriting, working on my first script and doing all I can to learn the craft. I'm Scottish but living in Daylesford (rural Victoria), about an hour outside Melbourne.
Right now I'm writing the script for a period drama set in the Scottish Highlands that I've been thinking about for over a decade. It follows an exiled Highlander's return back home following the aftermath of Culloden, and the tragedy he causes as he tries to fight for his beliefs. It has a good dash of Scottish mythology and his encounters with the Otherworld, along with murder, wrongful execution and revenge.
I'm hoping to learn if I write well enough to do it for a living, so always listening out for good advice and pointers.
Love the connections, especially anyone around Melbourne way.
