Sounds like you have ambition my friend. I always wanted to be a producer, but of course very few people really get the cool jobs even if you do have
experience and knowledge.
I had a link of some questions most asked of screen writers, but seem to have misplaced it. A good site for you would be to go to the
and browse some of the topics for a start.
You may want to consider that in the likely event you don't make it big, you can always get into local independent films where many upcoming talent
are just waiting to accept your work. The pay probably sucks though, but if your good you can get your foot in the door.
It sounds like, from your post, that you are overlooking some of the best qualities of writing for screen; plot and character dynamics. When you
mention horror movies, most of what you said relies on careful editing and visuals to move the audience. As a writer, the story itself is the canvas
and not how the editor should cut the scenes. Neither should you be writing a screenplay where you explain how the actors should feel either.
Have you ever read through a screenplay? If not try perusing through some of your favorites to see what the cast and crew had to work with:
