I have an idea for a epic fantasy story and I've been having trouble figuring out which medium to work it through. The ones I'm trying are script and novel. I like script because you don't have to express their thoughts and can just work on the action and dialogue to do it. Then I also like novel because I feel it would work for my story but don't want to express all their thoughts every time something significant happens. That's what I tend to do. How do I not do that and just work on the story? I feel if I don't include the thoughts that each chapter just ends up being three pages and it ends up kind of boring. I want a novel that when you read it, is like watching a movie in your head. I don't want the reader to know that the main character has three older annoying sisters and that he got sick four times when he was eleven if he doesn't have to. That's kind of my problem. I want to write the novel version but want to not have to explain every little detail about their life and what they're thinking every time something significant happens. I just want to explain what happens in the moment and "show" what they're thinking with their actions and not have to say it. That's why I like script but I don't want to write a script. Is it going to be a boring novel if I just write it like it's a script? I'm new to writing fiction. I have wrote a lot essays and reports for college and stuff (being very descriptive and cohesive, of course) and have been trying for months how to write this story but I either write too little detail or way too much. Please help.
