Today, I’m going to ask a pro for feedback on my screenplay idea because well, I’m a glutton for self inflicted pain, apparently. :-0) It’s not because of anything my esteemed guest says that I find myself heaving with embarrassment; he’s absolutely gracious and kind. It’s because I was obviously so clueless… but I promised to take you with me on this journey so…here we go!
For the first episode of this series on nurturing the creative in you, I’m pleased to introduce you to someone who’s had a way of shaking up the church with his music and films for decades. Steve Taylor is now Director of School of Theater and Cinematic Arts at Lipscomb University as well as Assistant Professor of Film and Creative Media.
Steve gives me some great tips which I have been applying since this prepandemic meeting. My screenplay is totally different after talking to him; instead of a feature film, I’m now writing for tv- (maybe it will turn into a really popular series!)
I hope that after hearing this conversation, you’ll feel encouraged to tackle something just outside your comfort zone too. The world needs your creative work, Love- how ever that plays out. I implore you to get some help and training in what ever your next step is… think of it as an investment in YOU!!!
If you’d like an Alongsider in your creative process, reach out to me; firstname.lastname@example.org. I’d love to hear how you’re cultivating the good gifts embedded in you. You do you! It’s YOUR thing. Don’t be a clone. :-0)
Now, let’s get out there and take up some space!
I’ll be back in two weeks!
Till next time
ps- I’ll be reading the newly revised logline to a couple of other pros this season, so if YOU are a fellow glutton for pain, come on back to hear a wanna be screenwriter have her work ripped apart because I’ve decided to give them each permission to tear it UP. :-0)
(No, it’s not like that at all – the people I speak with are so kind. You know I only bring you the best! Yeesssss Girl.
