One of the things I would really like to do in my writing career is write movie novelizations. On one hand it seems really cheesy and not what books should be about, but in addition to being a way to make some money it seems like a really good way to study the structure of other people's stories in a way that most novelists don't get the chance to do. Musicians almost always play and interpret other people's compositions before they write their own, and learn about music that way. Re-writing someone else's story into a different format seems like a great learning process. Does anyone know about what it takes to break into writing novelizations?
