Screenwriting with passion! Why screenwriters write...

. Saturday, April 4, 2009

I would like to take the time to just write a small post on why write. My opinion, we write because we have something to say or show, that has never been written in the way you will express it into the screen or paper. The hardest thing to do, is actually write. Our lives get in the way and then something that we have a true passion for, and would do almost anything to become/ achieve, quickly becomes a dream instead of working on it to make it a reality. Treat screenwriting as something that you have to do, put it in your schedule, make it a part of your life, and believe it. Ask yourself: What will i do in order to have time to write? How far am i willing to go to achieve this goal? What is the importance of my writing to me, and how should I prioritize it among the other 100 tasks in my daily routine?
I just keep saying this to all of you, Just do it! Don't lose your focus on your true passion and purpose!
