New here, my main goal is to learn how to write a novel (young adult thriller/horror). I have been studying screenwriting for 6+ years and written as many screenplays, so I am well versed in story structure, characters, sequencing. I'd like to take one of my screenplays and work it into a novel. Two edged sword: I am so looking forward to being able to write what my characters are thinking, smelling, feeling, writing about past events, none of which belong in a screenplay; on the flip side, I will need to learn to write prose about what my characters are thinking, smelling, feeling, writing about past events. Hoping writers on the forums will help me with accomplishing this goal. And in return I hope I can shared some of my insight with aspects of screenwriting. I still plan to write and polish my screenplays, but I very much want to turn several in novels, to see the stories realized and read. A screenplay is a hard thing to sell and even then only 1 in 10 ever get produced. With eBooks these days, a novel is pretty much guaranteed to get published (now whether anybody reads it is another story). Besides writing, I am a visual artist (photography, painting, drawing) and I like to compose film genre music.
