Defeat Is Not An Option

My new writing venture is going to involve reading scripts more times then I can count,  and watching the movie to go along with for about the same. I was reading about the process of pitching ideas and how to go about doing it. So while I have this time off for the holidays, that’s my area of focus. The only thing that’s missing from my research is a mentor. I’m one of those people who would benefit greatly by getting strict and realistic feedback that can draw me closer to my main goal. Writing a screenplay. As of now I am taking an independent study on screenwriting and in the following year I will be making a short film to go along with the script created. However, the creative process has not seemed to come easy. Research has been done, but it doesn’t count for much in making an original idea. While I’m on this journey I’ll pray for the best this Christmas season and hope for a project I can be proud of in the new year.

 

Enlightened

The one topic that has been on my mind for quite some time now is the extent to which youth today render school as useless. For some unknown reason I love getting an education. My close family has different opinions about school and I think that impacts my motivation on some level. The reason for the mention of this is my recent move into the working world. I am surrounded by people who have all different opinions regarding where they feel their life should go and I can’t help but look at the ones who gave up to easily and think if they had the willingness to succeed then they would do so much good. School might be one of those small steps but it’s a small step that does so much good. Anyways I think I’ve said as much as I can for today.
