    Write for television or radio

    Discussion in 'General Writing' started by Rebecca_Jayne, Sep 1, 2014.

    For over a year I have had this idea for a serial drama and I am writing it as a script for either television or radio. I have plans for particular episodes and storylines but I honestly do not think that each episode is going to be longer than about fifteen - twenty minutes judging by the way the first one is going.

    My question is basically this: Do I write each episode to a 'natural' length for radio or do I try and stretch it out to fit at least half an hour for television?

    Any thoughts or tips would be much appreciated.
    Rebecca :)

    I suppose it depends on why you're writing it. Were you going to produce it yourself, in an "indie" sort of way?

    It is a good idea also for those, who has a lake of confidence and who hesitate to tell people that they are a writer. Duration of your story depends on the radio and television for which you are writing for, according to me, writing natural length will be easily acceptable.
