I may be a nobody encouraging you to become somebody, but I know you can become anything you desire if you apply yourself to write scripts that reach fruition. The secret is to complete entire #scripts that will serve as the framework to your electrifying ideas. Apply yourself. Treat screenwriting like a job that has deadlines. Accept advice. Be open for criticism. Schedule time to write. Reward your effort. Condition your mind to love #screenwriting If you follow this approach, you will find happiness in your screenwriting journey. You may ask what do I know? Maybe I should only listen to successful people? What I know are from experiences, wisdom, education and investing many sleepless nights into writing/reading/planning. Why am I not a famous screenwriter yet? I allowed my life to influence me. I made excuses that my finances prevented me from finishing scripts. The truth is I know how to become a screenwriter. I possess the tools to reach this dream. However, I keep letting bad habits such as politics, social media, and news delay my scripts. What I should be doing is writing pages. Recently, I got tired of my life sinking and realized that I cannot waste my time continuing to sabotage my journey. Lose your fears! Know your place in this world. Accept that you are responsible for your journey. Stop blaming events/people/life and everyone else! If others before us or those who don't even know they want to become a screenwriter can make it, why not you? Make adjustments to re-evaluate your time. What are you not doing? If you haven't finished a script that is marketable, determine-from outside the writer in you- whether you'll pay to watch your movie. Why will studios want to option your script? There are so many layers to reach screenwriter stardom. If you want to write to change lives, you will find happiness in your screenwriting. I challenge you to write an entire script. Every bit of effort you put forth will push you closer to the end. No time is ever wasted screenwriting. Instead of talking about screenwriting, set goals to finish scripts. Don't work on several projects that will spread you thin, just focus on your strengths to deliver a final product.
Sometimes having a dream is better than achieving a dream. Once we accomplish this dream, there is a strong probability our desire and passion can wane. Staying on top is harder than reaching the top. Have a dream? Already accomplish this dream? Is your desire living the dream just as strong as when struggling to make a name for yourself? Apply everything in your arsenal to enjoy waking dreams. We cannot hope the next life will deliver us the same results. It is now, or never. Want to settle for an average life full of problems? Be limited on how much you can spend? Never travel the world? The choice is yours to become somebody. Only you can make your dreams reality. Keeping a dream on life support is no way to reach prosperity. Push your dream to the forefront of reality. Know your identity. Don't attach your dream to your existence in this world. Your dream is merely a product of you, not a representation of your identity. Your identity is what makes you who you are. #screenwriting is not your identity, it is your passion and/or the dream/career you choose to follow. If you put pressure on yourself to become a top screenwriter, you may fail yourself. Spend more time writing and reading scripts. This is your best strategy to move closer to reaching your screenwriting dream. Investing countless hours visiting boards, leaving comments, asking questions, and admiring other famous writers will only delay your dream. At the end of your day, you will ask yourself why am I not a screenwriter? Reward your effort, not #success . Social media and the web steal our time. If we lose time, we lose our dream. Manage your time wisely. If you choose to always have your dream there and never plan to reach it, your desire to visualize this achievement will remain strong. However, the 20 percent of screenwriters willing to make sacrifices and put forth the time to write #scripts and get constructive criticism can/will become well-known screenwriters. The choice is yours--live the dream or imagine the dream. Both will satisfy your passion. Only one selection will make your dream a reality. Best of luck choosing your path!
Next on "not suffering": people ask me all the time what I eat, since they know I'm on a very restricted diet for healing my chronic illnesses. And I am. What do I eat? Here's an example, a pretty standard breakfast. And my brain is clearer and clearer, my skin is clear, I'm sleeping better, and the fat is pretty much gone from my body...including from that constant source of my dysmorphia, you know, between my neck and my stomach, which has shrunk many sizes. I'm not suffering because of my diet. However, it continues to show me how deeply consumerist and ablest our cultural and social life tends to be, and how deeply problematic this is vis-a-vis sustaining #community , #relationships , and creating and building upon connections in all industries / disciplines / sectors of the arts. And that is a source of sadness and frustration -- and new awareness of how much change is needed. We all need to work harder on #access to events and community, making sure it's not ultimately through after hours sharing of food and alcohol that we build our world. Also: folks need to feel they aren't in danger of doing damage to their careers / friendships / network if they need to make changes for their health and well being. All too often folks fall back in because the isolation and alienation is too extreme. You may not even realize how normalized the language / scripts are around assumed standard behavior / activity / consumption. #deepthoughts#justice#culture#cultureshift#ableism#disabilityawareness#food#healing#spoonie#endowarrior#warrior#healthyself#dysmorphia#choices#health#language#code#scripts#sobriety#safespaces#socialpressure#mostlyplants#aip#aippaleo#paleo#plantbased#wholefoods
