    Scripts as "novels"

    Discussion in 'General Writing' started by Griplan, Aug 11, 2011.

    I often find reading scripts just as fun as reading novels/short stories/etc. I like the visual quality present in scripts, but I wish that they weren't as bare bones as they can sometimes be. At the same time, I have never found a novel that had "just enough" for me; there are always sections that I feel could've been cut out to streamline the story. At the same time, I have never read a novel (besides Misery) that was "just enough"; there are always sections that I could do without.
    Do you ever think that there could be a market for a script/novel combo or a market that would simply sell scripts as an alternative form of book?

    "The Miracle Worker" is one script that turned into a book, it has been done before and could work. However, it was also a play.
