As the screenwriters strike drags on, some writers are turning to writing novels.
Hollywood writers turn to Plan B: the novel comments however: “‘Oftentimes, you shudder when a screenwriter sends you a novel, because they tend to be strong with dialogue but crappy with context, and novels are all about creating the proper context for the story,’ said Evans, whose clients include Smith and Michael Chabon. ‘Screenwriters are attracted to novel writing because they can let their freak flag fly and just write what they want, but the truly talented novelist-slash-screenwriter is very rare.'”
If you assess the demands of the medium you’re writing in, you can be successful at writing anything. But writing a novel is very different from writing a screenplay.
