Hey everyone! New here and I really would love some feedback on adapting a novel into a script. I am a educator and novelist of 5 books with a MFA. I teach creative writing for a living. But I have finally garnered some interest from some investors in one of my novels and they want me to write the script. It's not a hard task at all, but condensing a 340 page story that I wrote (and enjoyed) into 30-45 pages (short film), feels excruciating. I am worried about pacing, fluidness, and losing some of the strength of characters. Is there a method to the madness? How do I break apart my own story and still keep intact in the script?
