The screenplay over the novel. Well, that’s how I feel about it, after beginning to read a screenplay for the first time. Just wonderful reading. I don’t have to wade through description after description. This doesn’t say much for my relationship with the novel, unless the novel or book really grabbed me, read: The City of Joy, The Imitation of Christ, are two books I can think of that got me very engaged. But as for ever writing a novel, probably not. Writing a screenplay is more likely. How does one come to this point? For me, it was simply comparing my general reading experience, of the novel and the script. The script won out.
