Now that 2011 has really started and we have all survived our second snowstorm, it seems very important to now focus on correcting the excesses brought on by New Years Eve partying and beginning to create a disciplined approach to finishing that screenplay!
My point of difference is that I believe it is desire rather than yelling at our selves to get our butts in the chair to get our screenplays written. So I invite you right now, as you are reading this blog, to list 5 reasons why it would be great for you to get that screenplay done. Here are a few examples:
1) To keep a promise made to yourself
2) The creative satisfaction of finishing something
3) The potential for a movie to be made
Many writers prefer to have written rather than focus on the arduous process of actually writing. The way to overcome this is before you actually start to work, pretend for a moment that the work is already done and imagine the benefit you will gain from having done it.
