You'll learn how to address common worries that beginning (or even more established!) screenwriters have.
You'll more confidently face the blank page.
You'll learn that you can't argue with your fears - they are winning if you argue with them! And what to do instead.
You'll feel that you ARE ENOUGH to start screenwriting.
You'll learn that you are NOT ALONE when feeling insecure about learning new skills.
Think of this as a warm chocolate brownie for your screenwriting soul:)

Requirements

Description

Knowing how to write a screenplay is only HALF the battle. And sometimes the easier battle. Feeling confident in your screenwriting abilities could be a much tougher challenge. You might feel...


IRRATIONAL (Am I crazy to think I can master script writing and break into Hollywood?)

INTIMIDATED (Am I cool enough to be around successful agents, producers, directors and actors in Hollywood?)

FEARFUL (Am I really good enough?)

DOUBTFUL (Can I do this if I have less experience in writing than other people?)

DISCOURAGED (Is there something wrong if I find this all difficult and overwhelming?)


I get it. We ALL feel those things. And the key to your success is how you HANDLE those fears.


I can help banish screenwriting "gremlins" so you can confidently write a script - put your dreams on the page.


You need to write.


You're not only helping yourself, but you are encouraging others to pursue their dreams by leading the way. The world needs you! Be the inspiration:)
