I could only find a couple of blog entries on this:

A few notes on film adaptations
Otherwise to become a better writer you just need to write a lot, and have it critiqued. I am a competent writer, (not of fiction) and the best
feedback I ever received on my writing was from actual editors of journals. They are paid to get the best writing for their publications, so they
will not give you any nonsensical "writer's workshop" type of advice.
Finally, I would be very careful about working on an adaptation where the source material has an active copyright, and is not in the public domain.
For example, adapting The Red Badge of Courage would be fine, since that novel is public domain. If you wanted to adapt, for example, George R.R.
Martin's A Game of Thrones, I think Mr. Martin and his lawyers would want to have a word with you.
