|This caption echoes how I feel at times.|
It has been 10 days since my last entry and although I've got 2011 off with a positive enthusiasm, I actually haven written a word for an old or new screenplay. I'm not proud or pleased to report that. I'm actually disappointed in myself. The one thing I can say is that what I write or don't write falls on me. Since the new year began I've been focused on spec ideas for the Nickelodeon Fellowship, www.nickwriting.com/. The deadline for applications is February 28, 2011 and that is just around the corner.
I picked three shows to watch and have read their synopses on Wikipedia, but after watching the first season of one show, I wonder if I have the chops to write in that style. Comedy isn't my area of expertise, but for this fellowship I need to be able to demonstrate some skill in this area. The night before last, I voiced my struggle with my husband and even mentioned an idea I have for the show, but judging by his response and expression I really need to flesh it out.
|What I need to do.|
I need to address the ways in which I hold my own self back. I need to prioritize my writing goals and create a schedule that will force me to write something everyday even if it is only one page. In addition to getting some writing done I need to work on the task of developing this schedule and really stick to it. While I wish my blog entry was more exciting, I'm glad to be addressing this issue with all of you. It's important that I'm honest with myself and sharing with you all helps.
Thanks for reading.
