The differences between writing for print and screen

The Dragon Page interviews me about the differences between writing for print and writing for television and film. It’s a good, meaty interview, and you can listen right here.

We talk about the current adaptation of The Time Traveler’s Wife, about Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, about House, about The Simpsons, about the new Battlestar Galactica, and of course about FlashForward. And at the end, we talk about my new novel Wake.

I come in at the 16 minutes 0 seconds mark, and go to almost the end of the show, 43 minutes 8 seconds mark.

(The book I recommend during the interview is Writing the TV Drama Series: How to Succeed as a Professional Writer in TV by Pamela Douglas.)
