After numerous attempts at prose, I decided to go in a different direction after studying with a former Hollywood screenwriter. Together with various books on film writing techniques, I believe, hope, I have the necessary skills to format the script I am currently developing. Using a Reader Service, they suggested I deepen and darken the love story and develop the characters' storylines, which I am now doing. I have now included a more intricated plot, with new ideas of how to make the characters more complex, to give more obstacles to their aims and also to make them more interesting, rather than one-dimensional types. This should complicate and interweave each characters' individual needs they are seeking and hopefully lead to a more fully fleshed out plot line. I am hoping I can get this screenplay finished early in the New Year. I hope I have found 'my voice' now with regard to commercially viable offerings, but only time will tell. As one of my characters puts it:- 'Life's a bitch. You seldom get what you want from it'. I am hoping that this won't prove true with my attempts at writing, but I know life holds no guarantees. I want desperately to transform my life and this is the only outlet for me. Thinking of Hollywood, but aware this is very remote. Would just be glad to get some sort of lucrative contracts for my scripts and establish my name within the business as a writer of commercial ideas. That's the ambition. Let's see how reality pans out..
