Abstract

This paper explores the creative process the author partook in as she completed Act I of a future full-length screenplay, which explores themes of depression, self-acceptance, hope, forgiveness, and love. The reflection investigates the impact of Sheri Lindeman's influences in the field of fiction and screenwriting shaping her structural choices, character development, and her growth as a writer. Although the screenplay submitted is a partial piece, incomplete due to length constrictions, a reflection on its initial creation and the extensive revision process will define this piece of writing as having potential for completion and possible consideration by the independent film industry.
