What a great week!
There’s such a feeling of optimism in the air!
I’m also proud to be associated with New York University and so many talented people! It’s very exciting!
There’s a lot to be gained by celebrating other creator’s successes. A great exercise is to write about what you want as if you already have it.
1.Set a timer for 5 minutes.
2.Start by imagining that you have won an award. Feel what that would feel like.
3.Write an old-fashioned acceptance speech, in which you thank all of the people who helped you followed by a short paragraph describing the project and your role as writer, director, and/or producer.
Creating a happy story about yourself will add energy to whatever you’re working on, and it’s a technique you can use to also develop characters. There are many awards and if you’re writing about someone who’s in a profession, having the character accept an award can give you great insight and often provides unexpected plot twists.
Enjoy feeling good!
There are a few places available in my upcoming rewrite class.
I’m so excited to share Jokeonastick episode #70. Check out the featured clip!
Here’s to your successful writing,
Professor Marilyn Horowitz
