So what happens if you take that script development model and transfer it to the world of novel writing? Is that a good idea?

Interesting article. I too am a novelist, but first and foremost. Only recently have I started adapting my work to screenplays, and it’s a hard lesson to learn–taking an 80,000 word novel and condensing just the most important bits to a 115 page screenplay without losing the overall flow of the novel. Not easy! Admittedly, learning how to effectively use loglines (and write them!) has helped with writing backcopy for the books. I still struggle with how to approach a script and use proper narrative it in order to make it marketable to producers, but at least my novel writing is finally taking off. And some of what I’ve learned about screenwriting has helped in my novels- your rule #7. Short, sweet, and to the point is usually better than slogging it out with too much dialog or narrative. Hopefully in the future with the aid of more books, coverage, and practice, I’ll have a screenplay that will wow someone.
Great post!

Many of us just want to write fiction as well as we possibly can and even if we have no intention of ever writing a film, television or web drama, a study of the discipline of screenwriting and its emphasis on a structured methodology and process can – and I emphasise can – be a good way of helping to achieve our goal. As I am currently discovering, it can also make you a better writer of digital games. But I’ll save that for another blog.

6. This isn’t what I paid for. An understanding of genre and genre conventions is essential in all forms of storytelling but none more so than in screenwriting. By making a point of considering genre right from the start of the writing process, the writer of fiction is encouraged to forge an understanding of their audience, reader or ultimate end-user.
