It’s About Time…
I love and hate this quote in equal measure. I love it, because I think it’s inherently true. I hate it, because it’s very easy to say something like that (especially at the end of your career when you know you’ve nailed it), it’s not so easy to do. It’s akin to the old adage that “you can be anything you want to be”. Yes, I guess that’s true too. For some. If you happen to know what you want to be. If you have the talent to be that thing, or the motivation and drive to make it happen for yourself.
So, I’ve undertaken a personal challenge this year. It sounds as crazy at it feels when I’m trying to do it. But, I’m determined to finish 22 first draft scripts in the year 2022. I know it sounds like an impossible task, but I have been working on most of these stories for years. Some even decades. Most of the stories are pretty much worked out in my head. It will be difficult, it will be challenging, but I am determined to get all of them on the page by the end of the year. First draft only people! I’m not a miracle worker!
I’d love it if you joined me. Maybe for fun, maybe for inspiration. Maybe as a challenge for yourself to see if you’ve got something inside you that you want to say or share – while you have the time. It’s the start of something, or the end of it. Let’s see what happens.
