Work in Progress - the Writing of Short Changed is the account of the script writing process I developed and followed in the writing of the first draft of the Low Budget feature film, Short Changed. It is a process that was developed by a combination of guidance, mentorship, research, experiment and talking with and listening to other writers during the 1998 Pacific Film and Television Commission's New Writer's Workshop. Short Changed was written over a six month period. During the previous year I had intermittently researched and pondered on the knowledge of an event that had invaded my mind. In the process of writing Short Changed, I have learnt much about the craft of screen writing and I have developed an approach which I intend to use in the writing of future screenplays. There are many ways to write a screenplay. My goal as a writer was to find the way that worked for me; to find the process that created a screenplay that embodied the hallmarks of both creativity and craft. As an accomplished writer of expository prose, I was searching for the key that would unlock the door to the world of writing creative fiction. This document is a reflective account of my creative writing process. It includes the exploration and actualization of the complex and intricate workings of the mind.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
