I got the writing bug recently after I finished the first issue of a comic book script. That material is materalizing slowly. I actually got a professional artist interested. But, he has obligations with Dreamworks for a bit of time. So, I have plenty of time to do rewrites on that.
Since, about October, I've been simply reading and writing as much as I can(time can permit with a day job); experiementing with various mediums and genres. I've wriiten an entire first issue of a comic book(with future outlines), a rythmic childrens verse novel(its EXTREMELY raw, I don't know what I'm doing), a comic short that could transition into a series, and a short story in prose. I also have a ton of ideas that I have written down. But, I'm narrowing it down to a couple of projects to execute on.
I finished conceptualizing a novel(I plan to do that next), but I stumbled upon a piece of music that gave me a fun idea for a film. So, I'm taking a shot at a screenplay. Its a comedy about an asian hitman who works for the Triads(its bad taste satire-not politically correct at all).
I learned the basic format for script writing. But, I'm not really being a stickler for ridgid format. I'm just writing what comes to mind. Then, after the first draft is done: I'll rework it for an audience. Its comedy which(for my writing sensibilites) tends to be spontaneous. I have the ending in my head and I'm writing towards it.
Any tips? I'm basically writing for myself but I'm having a lot of fun with it. I plan on bringing in a co-writer at some point to kinda work with structure. Interestingly enough, I find screen play writing to be the easiest medium to write in so far.
