    The difference between a novelist and a screenwriter is that the novelist is creating an end product to be consumed by members of the public. If successful, your returns are much higher.

    A screenwriter, however, you are viewed more as work for hire. You are expected to consistently deliver on other people's expectations and deadlines. Just like a copywriter. You can't expect to spend a year on an ad pitch when the brand wants to see the script yesterday.

    Unless you make a living purely selling specs. Which almost never happens.
