Here are 10 quick writing observations, a mixture of my own experience and what fellow writers often tell me:
- Fridays are always very quiet for emails (just me?).
- the worse you think you're getting as a writer, you're actually getting better.
- those feelings of writing insecurity get bigger the more your career develops.
- achieving a reliable (and admirable) professional quality to your work is great but sometimes not enough; making a script read well is not always the same as telling a good story.
- sometimes commissions will go awry, despite best intentions from all concerned (writer, producer, script editor, etc).
- getting fired from a script sucks balls.
- rejection will always feel personal no matter how much you're told the opposite is true.
- rejection is rarely personal.
- having an online profile as a writer is essential. Everybody Googles, so be in control of what comes up in the search results.
- you don't need an online profile as a writer; just write. Google schmoogle.
How about you? Any interesting observations/quirks?
