I'm using up all my words elsewhere at the moment, the scriptwriting work is incredibly challenging and I am learning so much. It has taken me a while, but for the first time I really understand that to write well you need to have a really really really good story. Once you have that story, and it may take a very long time, the actual writing will probably come by itself. I always thought of writing as stringing together words in a beautiful way, but this course is forcing me to wring out every drop of story I can possibly come up with, and then some.
It's incredibly liberating, actually, to concentrate on "What happens next..." but also horribly frightening. So it looks like I may be writing a thriller! Who knew??!!
As my days progress in a rollercoaster ride of great idea, awful idea, great idea, awful idea I need to keep my mind on what's truly important...so I'm listening to this song quite a bit.
I hope that you enjoy it too! (The John Butler Trio):
