Screen Writing (and Wiring)
OK, this is interesting.
I wrote “ICE COLD KILL” as a novel and went through … oh, scores of drafts.
Now I’m working on the screenplay and I’m finding all new aspects of the story. The media are just wired differently.
Not the least: Rhymes in dialogue.
“…fall of the Berlin Wall…” is fine in a novel. But it rhymes.
“…the Berlin Wall falling…” is a better line.
Different media, different problems.
