I’ve been attempting to get back to my script writing and seem to start, but not finish since I took an online script writing course over the summer. It’s not that I’m a bad script writer, but I’m not yet great enough to win any contests. After my last attempt and loss I returned to writing poetry and got published in online magazines and on the Judd’s Hill Wine website. I still have some submissions pending and anxiously await the results of those poetry endevours.
But that’s not the same as writing a script and getting it accepted. I’ve got so many scripts started and unfinished that I’m beginning to think I should concentrate on just short scripts and start making them myself. With this in mind, I visited my son’s new rented trailer with the intention of loading software for my newly purchased super small HD camcorder. We had a lovely visit and when it was time to load the software, Ms. Brainiac discovered it was at home! Now I must wait until my next visit (he has broadband whereas I have dial up here in The Boondocks).
As soon as I returned home I again began working on my scripts and soon realized I needed motivation to get me back on track; so I invested $3.00 in a mini screenwriting contest that closes Dec. 31 at midnight. I’ve already got the required pages written, but am still having trouble creating the logline. I had thought about waiting to submit the payment and deduced that I might not finish the information if I waited; so the $3.00 has been a good investment in motivation. And now tell me Fellow Readers, what do you do when you want/need motivation?
