My name is Audrey-Rose and I am a screenwriter. I say this like it's an addiction, because that's exactly what writing is to me. My specialty is dialogue, so I won't pretend that action is my strength, but it's not lagging 3 leagues behind me either.
I started writing my own Goosebumps stories when I was 5 years old (I ran out of books to read), adapted Searching For Dragons into a screenplay at 11 (I figured it would be a good way to learn to write movies), and at 13, I co-wrote a first-draft 200-page plausible X-Files movie with a friend (It didn't suck, that was surprising.)
What originally attracted me to screenplays was the sharp, distinct, dialogue that some of my favourite interactions had. Now, when I write something, if I don't get that feeling from the dialogue, then I don't feel like any amount of action is going to fix the story for me.
The characters tell the story in the end, certainly not the screenwriter nor anyone else. (But that's just my point of view.)
I'm looking to finally hunker down and punch out all my scripts, get them out there to the public, and hopefully get to work with some amazing people along the way. I love bringing a character's story to life.
