Eighty, I say. My screenplay is now 80 pages long. I predict when finished, it will be approximately 110 to 120 pages long. Thus far, these have been my most ardent challenges.
- Time!! I’m remain a full time high school teacher, adjunct college professor, and tutor; therefore, I write when I’m able to mine small moment of time, moments that I cannot plan to find. They generally present themselves when I do not expect them. When said presentations are made, I need to take advantage of them, AND WRITE!
- Small revisions often need to large ones. when one drops a pebble in a pond, the ripples that pebble make it the water expand and reach. Revisions do the same. A small change can ripple through the entire story.
- Self-doubt. All writers, all artists, wrestle with self-doubt. Are my words good enough?!?! Still, this doubt is a blessing as well for it pushes me to work and work…to craft the best screenplay I can.
