I am currently writing my first drama script and would love to get advise and/or feedback on a few things. I have been a writer for six years now but have only recently begun writing screenplays, prior to that I was a sportrswriter for a newspaper and a non-fiction writer. I recently wrote my first script, a horror, and surprisingly enough it came rather natural to me. My next project, however, is not going as smooth. I want to write a drama but am having a tough time determining what is drama and what is just plian boring. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to write intrieging drama without putting people to sleep. (My general plot line is that of a hot shot movie producer living in California in his mid thirties when he gets word his father, whom he hasnt spoken to in almost 20 years, in on his deathbed. He returns home for his dad's funeral torn about never getting the chance to patch things up...it gets even more complicated because his sister hates his guts for leaving home all those years ago and he meets up with his old love interest as well. Basically it's a wasted time and rekindled relationship plot. I know its not exactly oscar worthy but its only my second script and thats about the best I can do right now!) Any comments, suggestions, etc. would be very welcome!
