Being snowed in and having nothing to do except read through my lines (again...), work through my song (again...), and watch a crap ton of movies (some good, most terrible), I've had plenty of time to think and surprisingly, I've actually accomplished something while appearing to do nothing.
See, I was watching one of my most favorite movies EVER, Ever After, and I was just thinking about how great a job the writer did, weaving different plot lines and developing characters, and taking a well known story and making it new and wonderful. At the same time, I was appreciating how it wasn't over the top and mushy and gross, as such remade fairy tales are likely to be. And then I realized, I COULD DO THAT TOO!
Granted, I haven't the foggiest how yet. But I can learn. I have google and college. I'm set. All my passions in one profession?
I may even branch out into directing or acting or something. And of course still write my novels in my free time. (Which I will have because theres only so long you can work on one project without needing a break) Plus with any luck, I won't have to work in an office.... (shudders)
Does anyone know anything about Screenwriting? Or shining examples of pure screenwritten art?
