This is like a continuation of my post about my experience using Scrivener. One of my current projects in that experimentation of the software, is working on a novel manuscript. This project is massive in scope. I developed it originally as a small neo-noir/science fiction thriller then tried expanding it into a continuing series. The problem now is that I am undecided whether to aim it at becoming a mini-series, TV series, graphic novel, a multi-part feature film series or condensing it into a standalone feature.
Regardless of my decision, I have been writing segments of prose in trying to get a feel for the tone of the story. Part of my decision to experiment in writing a script this way came from what I read about Quentin Tarantino and his writing process. The only difference is that I will continue to work with a computer rather than writing it out by hand (Sorry, QT!).
