Sleeping Brodie: a screenwriting virgin’s quest is, at its core, about storytelling in film; how to take elements like characters, setting, conflict, theme and plot, and blend them together to create a living screenplay.

The purpose of the blog – inspired by Muriel Spark’s brilliant title character from her 1961 novel, The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie – is to document not only the screenwriting process, but all the bits in between.

By recounting my journey, leaving breadcrumbs along the way, it’s my hope to inspire readers to create and share their own stories.
