Paid Members Shy Dad Posted January 30, 2018 Paid Members Share Posted January 30, 2018 Evening everyone, hope all are well. I'm kinda coming here for a bit of a discussion, but also looking for a bit of advice. So I know a few people on this board at one time or another have mentioned writing books, being in bands, doing poetry or stand up and all that's in between. I'm currently in the process of writing my first full length screenplay having done some shorter bits for University/College/Free Time over the year. However I'm very out of shape, despite knowing how to format everything, and having a base idea on what I want included, at times I know I'm getting very disjointed and don't want to get too rambly, especially for a script that a team of us are already looking for me to finish in the next few months so that we can put in place a film team for the summer/autumn (one good thing of creative universities is everyone is connected now). Basically, my question and advice I'm looking for is for anyone who's wrote something full length of near 2 hours, or a book, or extended prose, how do you find your best tips and techniques for making sure everything is planned out but not to such an extreme that you lose a bit of creative flair to it because something that comes to you at 2am may not fit your overall plan? I want to hopefully have this thread as a place people can look for advice if maybe looking to do stand up or poetry or anything and looking for any tips. I've been to Edinburgh Fringe with a full length show and been writing stand up for around 5 years and did quite a bit of songwriting before that, so I have advice in those fields for anyone looking for any, that may be of some use. Hopefully this thread doesn't die on its arse, it'd be good to show how creative the UKFF is. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
