**WARNING! CHEESY ANALOGY AHEAD!**
My attempts to make Chinese food could be described as aspiring, but ultimately they fall short. My first-ever batch of General Tso’s Chicken? I’m pretty sure the sauce was not supposed to have the consistency of jello.
As much as I would like to be able to whip up a killer batch of chow mein, I’m just not there yet. But despite numerous almost-got-its, I keep trying. I like to think someday I’ll get it right.
Which is also how I approach writing a script.
Starting out, it was learn as you go. I made a lot of mistakes, but was able to learn from them and knew what not to do the next time. It also helped to get feedback and advice from more experienced writers. Without their guidance, my progress would have slowed significantly.
So I write as often as I can. Daily, when possible. My writing’s improved, but I’m still learning as I go. And the more I work at it, the better I’ll get. That’s the plan.
If only this could apply to my Chinese food. So until that magic day when it doesn’t suck, I’ll remain eternally grateful for take-out menus and home delivery.
