  1. Excellent ideas, Jan. As someone who switched formats (from author to screenwriter) I find my characters are more writer friendly, possibly due to the requirement of leaving so much of the story open to creative interpretation for actors, directors, etc. IE, you have to mostly write action and dialogue with concise description. When a character falls silent I must find him quickly because he’s up to something.

    I recently downloaded a professional screenwriting format program. It doesn’t play well with Word, so the rewrite is in progress. It’s amazing how much it’s already improved the story. The characters seem happier, except for the villain who’s gotten much worse.
