Screenwriting is Da Bomb
So my screenwriting class is going well, very well. The students are very eager and excited about the program. I'm just happy to be there and while I'm the oldest one, I still feel like a freshmen in college.
We have had several assignments like: creating atmosphere, scenes without dialogue, creating stories from random conversations and surprise moments.
In my first assignment, I made a B+. I wasn't happy about that (yes, I'm that person), but it only inspired me to do better. I realized I was thinking too hard about the assignments. I needed to chill and let it happen and once I did, nothing but A's.
I almost got teary-eyed because the my teacher was impressed with my work. It felt so good to read her reviews of my scripts.
To be honest, I finally feel that I can do this. After receiving 3 A's, writing my first short movie doesn't seem so scary. It will be a challenging time, but one I will truly enjoy.
