Screenwriting has different demands than fiction. I continue to write fiction and I find it is very useful to write things in prose before they become screenplays so that I know what people are thinking and can come up with their actions. Screenplays rely on drama — on something happening, on conflict — whereas fiction can be very interior, as well as a storytelling medium.
