So, for the past several weeks, I’ve been writing my next project. I’ve never worked on one like this before, and its not easy. I think I hate it. Well, actually I love it, but the line between the two is really thin, right? I hate the way it makes me think about it all the time. I hate that friends call me, and instead of calling them back, I sit at my computer and work on this thing. I hate that even in auditions, callbacks, and shoots, its at the back of my mind- nagging at me to finish it.
When I found myself in a major writing slump, I asked friends for advice. Fellow writers, actors, 9 to 5ers. Ultimately, it was a kid that provided the simple advice that got me out of my slump and back into a good flow: “Write until its not fun anymore. Anyway, if its not fun, no one will want to read it anyway.” Funny where ideas and inspiration come from.
So I put it away for a couple weeks, focused on the rest of my life, and am pleased to say I’m more happy with it now than ever before. Stay tuned 🙂
