The creator of Draw Something is longing to write something.

Charles Forman, 33, who founded the video game company OMGPop and struck gold with its Pictionary-like Draw Something app in 2012, is pursuing a different sort of dream these days: screenwriting.

After Forman sold his company to Zynga (of FarmVille fame) last March for a reported $180 million, he found himself asking the very question that any triumphant entrepreneur might ponder after effectively cashing in: What's next?

In an email to Valleywag, Forman explained that he's completed a film treatment about the unintended consequences of civilian drones. Stranger, though, is that he has offered to send the script to just about anybody on the Internet and given out his phone number so people can share their thoughts. "If you are at all interested," Forman writes in his blog, "email me at: charles@setpixel.com, and I'll send it to you. You can even call me with your feedback: 917-696-5465."

"Good feedback reinforces that my idea is great, and that I made the right choice to make this seminal movie," he explained.

That's not to say that the writing process didn't come without its own laundry list of setbacks. In the blog post, Forman details the varied and extravagant diversions that his writers' block triggered, including: cleaning his entire apartment, planning a month-long trip to Bangkok (where he didn't write a single word), having all of his wisdom teeth removed and contemplating the inadequacies of screenwriting software.

"If I suck at screenwriting," he concluded, "at least I can fall back on writing a book about screenwriting."
