I'm actually wrestling pretty deeply with the question I posed in the title of this post. On the one hand, I really want to keep writing screenplays because that's something I really enjoy, but part of what I enjoy about it is the idea of possibly seeing a piece of writing turned into a film project. Sure, I could do that myself with some of my stuff, but that's beside the point.
I don't enjoy short stories and novellas -- I can't write a novel, I've tried many times -- as much as screenplays, but I do still enjoy the creative expression. I've also toyed with the idea of turning scripts into narrative podcasts or even comics, though that option is out the window due to a severe lack of budget to hire artists.
With the pandemic, there doesn't seem to be many projects getting made, so I wonder if pursuing a screenplay and selling it or using it to try and get assignments is worth it at this point.
