New to screenwriting


Hey there. I'm new to the world of screenwriting. I do have a grasp of story though, and have published 5 novellas so far.

As far as taste goes, I like films that leave a lasting impression more than a temporary emotional experience at the theater. If I'm still thinking about a film five years after seeing it, that's a good film in my view.

I am a big fan of horror, though I find it hard to find advice on writing that specific genre. I like horror when it leaves me with a lasting sense of dread, discomfort after the film is over. For me, the scariest horror is the kind where normal, benign things are turned abnormal, for reasons we can not explain.

As far as my own writing goes, I like to be somewhat of a minimalist.
