Writing a Manuscript
• Guidance to writers interested in all forms and genres
We assume you have stumbled upon our website for one reason: you are interested in writing. These pages address the writing processes, which do vary by form and genre. A novel, a play, a software manual, and a screenplay are different; they require different approaches creatively and mechanically.
Throughout the writing process, mechanics and audience expectations are important. A great play might be a rather dull movie, while car chases are a bit difficult to produce on a stage. Novels can span decades or centuries, while a short story must quickly develop characters and tell a story. No two forms of writing are the same and few writers are good at multiple forms.
