It’s becoming obvious to me that getting The Chosen Vessel written isn’t actually going to be too much of problem for me. I feel as though I know the characters and I can see the scenes so clearly that it’s as though I have already watched the movie. I'ts practically writing itself in a way that is both magical and terrifying. Writing this screenplay has been so much easier than writing my novel because I have truly unleashed the power of writing what I know. I think I’m even starting to get the hang of screenplay formatting, which a mere five days ago seemed about as achievable as mastering the moonwalk, or juggling, or solving a Rubik's cube. But what do with it when I’m finished? My thinking at this stage is that I will send it somewhere and pay to have it professionally assessed. But where should I send it? I have no idea. I should probably make sure that the spelling and grammar are probably edited too. I spent most of today blogging about what I have been doing because since I am just as green as I am cabbage looking when it comes to screenwriting. I figure that documenting my experiences in this blog might help and inspire any other cabbages out there. I certainly could do with guide book on how to break into the Australian film industry and since I haven’t come across one, perhaps I'll need to write it myself.
PS . If anyone knows of a guide book on how to break into the Australian film industry then please tell me about it in the comments.
