Well, I’ve started – but, so far, am just trying to get the words and stage directions down. I know I have to set it out differently and I promise I’ll do that eventually, but I want to see if it works and how long it takes before I put it into the right format.
How long should a scene be? So far they are very short and I find I am leaving out whole chunks of the book because they are set somewhere impossible ( Like a cricket pitch)
I know some plays use back projection but I am trying to limit my sets to the possible.It’s a lovely challenge and really making me think.We get so used to television it is great to have to consider props and doors etc. Also, when the characters are in places where there would be a crowd of people do I write in a couple of non speakers or indicate as much by sound?
No time for twitter. This is more fun.
