Just gonna copy and paste something I posted on my Tumblr, kinda want some feedback or opinions on this:
Is scriptwriting still considered… well, as creative writing?
I mean, with an actual script format and all, like for a movie or TV show. I recently had to write a script for a short film idea for school, and just…
It was honestly the most comfortable I've felt with writing in literally years. Mangaged to get down 9 pages, even though the assignment asked for a minimum of 6. I have been trying to write fan fics, and some original stories in general, for the past two years or so. But after maybe three pages of writing I go "AUGH this is horrible!" and just delete the whole file. So many files deleted, because I felt like they were written poorly. @_@
I don't know why I didn't get that reaction from writing a script. It's, interesting, I guess.
I'm tempted to at least write down what I have for ideas as scripts, then just draw them out as comics later, but… I dunno, is it bad that I'm more comfortable with script style writing than with traditional novel-style writing?
Like, I don't even know how novelists feel towards scriptwriters and vice-versa. But if it's anything like how different groups of artists are (For example, digital versus traditional), it's probably not pretty. :/
So, yeah. I know there are a good couple of writers following me, so I kinda wanna know what's the consensus on scriptwriting versus regular novel-style writing. Is it wrong of me to be more comfortable with scriptwriting? Honestly, the only difference is the format and the program I'm using, but it really does feel more comfortable to me. @_@;
