I have had an idea for a novel for many years, but I started my writing path by writing plays. I then began to look at screenplays cause I love movies and the places that medium can takes it's audience. Because of this, I find my style of writing as thinking it through like it would be shown on a stage or on a screen. Writing a novel has stumped me in that I am having to describe all of the details instead of leaving that up to the director to come up with their own interpretation of how they want it to look. I have always thought of the process of writing a screenplay as a collaboration of my story points and then the unknown of the Director's interpretation of how events will look and be shown. It always makes it an interesting and exciting process for me because I try and give just enough in the script to get the important parts of the story across, but still leaving the Director to his/her creative genius to "paint" the story for the audience. So here is the question... Do I continue to try and write a novel for this idea, and the create a screenplay later if it is popular, or just fall to my comfort level and write this as a screenplay and leave it at that? I would love your feedback!
