I've been working on Sherwood Forest again- well actually what I've been doing is taking the scripts I wrote and rewriting them as short stories, which I plan on publishing on Smashwords on a monthly basis, as a sort of series. (Also I have renamed it "Sherwood Stories" because that's more memorable.) Things I have learned about in the process of turning scripts into short stories:
- the need to choose a POV character for each scene (and shuffle everyone's positions accordingly)
- the need to adjust scene placement for pacing reasons
- the fact that some characters get dropped altogether (sorry Much)
- the sudden and terrifying need for interiority when previously I could just put in stage directors and trust the actors to convey the emotions.
