  • Wine Wednesday - Ep 77 - Planning Your Writing Year and Sticking To It

    Wine Wednesday - Ep 77 - Planning Your Writing Year and Sticking To It

    02/03/2020 Duration: 56min

    The title of this episode of Wine Wednesday says it all. It's one thing to make a plan, but what good is it if you don't stick to that plan? And we've found that most writers tend to have a plan of "Sell my screenplay this year". But what does that mean, really? Do we really understand what goes into that process, and do we actually have control over selling our screenplay? This episode is all about focusing on what you can control, and sticking to that focus - your craft, education, and production of scripts. Felicity and Max discuss various ways you can create an active approach to that big goal of selling a script, but this is important to note: you must love the process more than you love the idea of selling a screenplay. If you don't, you will only focus on the end result...and it's an end result that we writers technically do not have control over.
