Well, I have been wanting to join some sort of writing group for some time. This is my first shot, and who knows what may transpire from all this. I believe that every individual has at least one good book in them (one hit wonder). I believe I have a couple. My own ideas are autobiographical, going with the old writing saying of writing what you know best! I plan to submit scenes from stories. I struggle with the dilemma of writing a screenplay or a novel, believing that a screenplay may be easier, given my own penchant for eliciting visual images in my writing. On the other hand, the novel form is more comprehensive and complete in conveying all the nuances of a story that a screenplay is limited to. However, a screenplay format forces the writer to be succinct and concise and get to the essence of the sequences of the story. And you can always adapt a screenplay from a book... so a novel format it shall be. Thanks. More later....soon I hope.
