Hope this helps

Nothing like a rousing speech to get things going

To all the writers out there having a tough time with their latest script:

It’s challenging.

It’s frustrating.

It’s the way it is.

But that spark within you continues to burn.

Right?

Nurture it.

Feed it.

Work on something else if you have to.

Let your enthusiasm help it grow.

Remind yourself why you write.

Why you do this.

Rediscover the joy.

Your enthusiasm for this particular story.

The excitement of putting ideas on the page.

Grab onto it.

Hold on tight.

There’s no “right” way.

There’s the way that works best for you.

Write when you can.

Don’t worry about how much.

Any amount of writing is better than none at all.

Write because you want to.

Write because you need to.

Write because there’s nothing else you’d rather be doing.

Write for you.

Write.

One thought on “Hope this helps

  1. Thanks, Paul. I think the big take away for me was “rediscover the joy of why you do this”. I often start to look at my scripts as a “chore” a “task” . Jeez, that’s what taking out the trash is, not writing. I need to remind myself that on the toughest day, it’s fun, sorta in the range of how you feel when you finish a half marathon. Man, I’m beat but I accomplished something worthwhile. Now, get back to those “pesky” re-writes.
