Two people have told me in the past month that screenplays are easy to write. Both of these people have actually written one. I must be missing something. I’m rewriting mine and find this the most complicated process I’ve ever performed. I’ve worked on computer models of complex physical systems. I’ve determined the orbit of a comet. I’ve calculated the orbital decay of a rotating cylindrical space probe (within 2 days of actual burn-up; NASA missed it by two weeks.) None of those were nearly as difficult as these 120 pages in front of me. Every time I read another book on the subject, the task looks more intricate. Are screenplays really easy?

Book Reviews & Blurbs
“J Guenther cleverly combines a plot of adventure on an imaginary sailboat with a shrewd eye on teen-age angst.
In the SILVER DREAM, Sharon and David ride the waves ... to adventures where dreams are created and realized. On their journey, the two are tossed from grief to sweetness, from fear to solace and safety.
Guenther is on the mark, using the main characters as narrators, unfolding parallel stories between past and present, dream and reality. SAIL AWAY ON MY SILVER DREAM is a captivating page-turner, with a winning cast of characters.
David and Sharon seem so real that readers might feel they've already met them. We feel their disappointment and hopes, and we join them wholeheartedly...” N. Decker
