Artists leave things behind
I have been thinking a great deal about the accomplishments of artists, especially painters, and how they spend their whole life creating visual items, each with its unique identity. Its fascinating to think about in a quantified manner, that a painter might leave behind hundreds, thousands or even tens of thousands of pieces of work. A regular worker on the other hand might spend as much time as the artist on the work he does, but has little or nothing to show for.
My father has spent a great deal painting in his free time through his life, and I have been fortunate enough to have some of his best work surrounding me.
I regret having spent so little time in building more tangible assets. But from here on out, this will change. My first task will be to start writing a script. I have not decided the length of it, character description or key outcomes, but I am going to note down key observations worth retelling in a partial science fiction story.
I have virtually no experience in creating a script, so any tips from experienced writers how this is done is always well appreciated!
