Screenplays

Before I started learning how to write screenplays, I though I was a good writer. After years on working on screenplays I can say I became a better novelist because I strived to be a good screenwriter. Both writing techniques are different, but they all relly on the same backbone: outline. Now I am an outline freak, with many projects hanging as post-its on my office wall. Living the dream!
