I’ve got 1735 words on the computer which is the first three scenes. So far, so good as it’s all in one place. It’s very exciting as I see things I need to make clear as I go along and I will have to add a lot more action when I’ve finished the script. The more I write the more real the characters become.
Now I have to decide whether to move the story from where it was in the book to somewhere the audience will know so that they get the feeling of familiarity.It might change the plot, but , who cares, this is a new play. it doesn’t have to be the same as the book.
