March 29th, 2012, I officially started voice recording my screenwriting journey. I have to admit that I have never made any of these recordings public, let alone go back and listen to any of them. Lately, writing has been a struggle for me and I didn’t know how to get back to the way things used to be in the beginning of this journey when there was so much hope. You go into this hoping that you’ll break into the industry soon, but as years pass by and rejection emails become a norm, the light at the end of the tunnel can tend to get dim. You don’t want to give up, but the doubt slowing starts to creep in.
It’s been a rough couple of years for me. I haven’t been writing as much as I would like. This year I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting and trying to get to the reason why I feel like I’m having a huge case of writer’s block. The desire to be a writer is still there. I still have no plan B.
I recently decided to listen to my first voice recording and it reignited something in me that had been missing for a long time. Posted below is a snippet of the recording. Hopefully, this will motivate some of you who have maybe lost your way or just need a little #motivationalmonday. Don’t give up. Keep fighting for what you want. Cry through it if you have to. I did during this recording and I did while listening to it again.
I’m motivated now more than ever to pursue this career. Why not follow this journey with me? Let’s see what happens…
