Today, I began my 10-week screenwriting course.
Henceforth, I’ll be very busy in the next few months and beyond.
That said, I have learned a lot on the first day already.
Unfortunately, I learned that I will not be able to keep most of the novel’s material for the screenplay (85 pages to 120 pages for a beginning screenwriter).
However, I could adapt my book to a TV miniseries (10 episodes – 10 screenplays). Thus, I would then be able to keep most of my novel’s material.
Decisions, decisions, decisions….
A New York University professorial colleague is right that I need to get signed to an agent. Until then, I have to manage the “show” and the “business” aspects of this journey.
