Screenwriting Techniques for Prose [Laurie Parker]

Make use of the screenwriter’s process by consciously employing narrative compression, time jumps, perspective shifts, concision and shorthand, nonverbal action, visual symbols, and images. Whether the product is an actual screenplay or a short story, novel, memoir, or nonfiction narrative, using the principles and techniques of screenwriting clears out exposition, makes the writing visual and active, reveals character authentically, and engages the reader-viewer’s mind’s eye.
