It’s been a long time, I know but life happens. I am back with a lot more of everything, content and videos.
“I get to say the think that all writers must tell themselves to start writing—which is nobody has to see this thing. I can throw it away. I’m alone with it. No one has to know what an idiot I really am. And I can burn it. And if it don’t work, if it really sucks, I can pretend that it never really happened. “
Oscar-nominated screenwriter Tony Kushner (Lincoln, Munich) and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright
I hope everyone out there is doing well.
I need your help, I am trying to attend the Story Expo in LA on September 6-8 to be able to hear Syd fields and other writers who have been successful and also to pitch my ideas for TV shows and movies, but money is an issue and I am asking every one if they could help me to get to LA in September because it is my dream to become a writer and to be in the film industry. So give what you can, and I appreciate you so much, i have a website that you can donate to it is:
Peace, Love, and Write
“My psychological state when I start a screenplay is always the same it’s a mix of fear, anxiety, and insecurity.”
– Akiva Goldsman, Oscar winner( A Beautiful mind)
I truly understand this quote, I have these same feelings when I sit down to write my screenplays. There’s the feelings of what if this is not good enough ? or what if I’m not a good writer? or what will people think of my work ?will the laugh at me ?or try to break me down? I often ask myself why out of all the careers in the film industry to be passionate about, I choose screenwriting. It seems like the hardest thing to do, to sit at a computer, staring at a blank page. No wonder anxiety is one of those feelings. But when a idea pops Into my head and I get to create a whole world and movie from just an idea is a very powerful feeling. Even though there are those feelings of fear, anxiety, and insecurity of not being good enough, I also have feelings of peace, joy, and excitement, through out the whole process. And though its painful process at times, my mom always said “no pain, no gain”.
Peace, love and write.
