Today I have to figure out how I am going to get pitches/proposals for four shows done soon. Not that there’s a rush. I should get them done so just the same. Part of this process if for me to help shape my stories a lot stronger than i have in the past. It will take a lot more effort that I put in projects in the past, and will keep working towards professionalism and excellence.
With this in mind I want to buckle down and throw my inner-censor out the window. I also want to embrace character-driven stories, so that means thinking more of the emotional stakes of the characters. That doesn’t always shine through at the initial stages of my writing, but if writing is rewriting, then I know it’s a matter of time before I get there.
As I mentioned yesterday, I love plot-driven stories, and I have had a steady diet of them, but I’m willing to try new methods of storytelling to reach my goal of becoming a full-time televisions writer-producer who creates his own shows. I also eventually want to help others reach their goals, but one step at a time, right?
Happy creative endeavors.
