It's not been a bad week of work - just finished the FIRST DRAFT of my first Philip K Dick screenplay adaptation. Other than my own books, this is the first novel I've turned into a screenplay. It was quite an interesting cut&paste exercise to actually leave enough of the story/dialogue in there without leaving it a boring film. It's interesting how much you can butcher a book and still leave narrative signposts all over the script that somehow (when done visually or by a comment at the right time) means you can obliterate 10-20 pages of book at a time.

It was great fun and I hope to be doing some more screenplay adaptations in the future.
