Coming Down from a Festival High and Getting Back to Work

Last week, I was in a celebratory mood. I was still getting a lot of kudos from colleagues, friends, and family for my recent screenwriting awards at the 2010 Action on Film Festival. Since my return I've been slowly coming down from the accolades and trying to get back my focus. It hasn't been easy. The shift from promoting and networking to getting back to the core of my writing is hard.

I know the hubby would tell me I need to stop putting so much on my plate. For once I won't argue with him, cause he's right. I need to do a better job at prioritizing my work.

I've had a lot of time to think about where I want my screenwriting to go. Am I really going to try and make this my career? The answer is yes, With that said, I need to exert a deeper dedication to the written word. At the end of the day it is about the writing. Writers write. I realize I have to do a lot more writing and I don't just mean my blogging either. I have to put in long hours to cultivate the characters and stories that are in my head.

I have a tall agenda to achieve if I am to stay on track. The journey will not be easy, but despite all the other things I have going on in my life, writing has to be and stay my focal point. If it doesn't, the only one I can blame for my lack of writing is myself. The pressure is on.

We can only do so much. Do you think in a way we try and over achieve, what the expression "twice as good as a man at your job just to be his equal".

I definitely think I try to over achieve and then I lose my way. I need to better pace myself for the long road ahead.
