More About Me
Hey there, greetings from India!
I've been writing screenplays as a ghostwriter for Direct-to-DVD films made in the US. Living so far from Hollywood makes it almost impossible for me to pitch my scripts to agents, managers or production houses. But hey, I write all the same. In this age of sequels, prequels and movies based on best selling novels, it is difficult to sell a spec and double difficult for someone in my position. But still I write them. I don't know if I'll ever sell a script but I love to write. So here I am.
There is a huge film industry in India but somehow, I find it even more difficult to write for movies here simply because there is no system to show how to proceed. It like a closed and heavily guarded fortress and I still don't know how to enter.
I love to write horror, paranormal/supernatural, thrillers and fantasy. I'm not at all good with romantic comedies. I learned script writing mostly by reading scripts, Syd Field and Blake Snyder. For writing, I use Final Draft and sometimes CeltX. Two years back, when I couldn't afford a computer, I used to write on paper and then type the whole thing in a cyber cafe. Now I have a laptop so it is not that tiring anymore.
Did I mention that I absolutely love to read fiction and watch movies? But that is expected, I guess.
Well, time to get back to writing. Cheers!
