Taking Alabama Gumbo to the screen
I've decided to write my third short screenplay. It took me 10 days to write 43 pages from my adaptation at Splice Publishing, Alabama Gumbo (https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/486565). At that pace, I could probably write a full-length movie in a month at 100 pages.
For those who read the E-book, I only made a few changes. It was scary how easy and quickly everything came together. (The company where I'll be sending to, however, may have other ideas).
Originally, I thought writing screenplays would be difficult. It's not as bad as I envisioned. It'd be scary if I actually either had guidance or studied screenwriting in college (I still may pursue a Master's Degree in the screenwriting someday or get a certificate).
I'll submit this one next year, with fingers crossed on two fall entries.
Have a great weekend!
