Premises of my narrative experiment

  • Screenwriters, not novelists, are the storytellers of our time.
  • The huge majority of their stories go untold because the movies go unmade.
  • There should be another vehicle for their stories.
  • More and more reading takes place on smart phones and tablets.
  • These devices are not verbosity friendly -- easier to read "vertical writing."
  • Twitter presents a new minimalist rhetoric for our time.
  • Recasting screenplays into vertical prose in a form looking more like traditional fiction than a screenplay, would satisfy 3 above and be less minimalist than tweets, therefore less extreme seeming.
  • Hence, Stories In Overdrive.
Wish me luck.
