Scaling Back

The Chronicles of Phoenix was my first official script and I didn’t know what I was doing. I “dove in head first” trying to learn as I went along. Honestly, the story was not flowing. I wasn’t feeling it.

I recently switched from writing in a structured format to a freewriting format. I feel like that works for me. Back to stage one.

On another hand, the other script that I was working on, I enjoy working on it. There is another story that I am freewriting and I enjoy working on that as well.

With The Chronicles of Phoenix, I tried to stretch the story and make it 100 pages. It wasn’t a 100-page script. This time I will try and not stretch it out and flow with the story.

The thing about working on projects is that it’s necessary to start on a small scale and take things in pieces.

Plans for my scripts (Screen journies Update)

It feels like I have slowed down after months of working on The Chronicles of Phoenix but between trying to do other projects and life I haven’t felt like working on it.  I have read some other blogs and also just reading so that I can become a better writer.  So I take micro-breaks for a couple of days (lol weeks) and pace myself.  My plans for the script are to eventually turn into a small budget project. After talking to a friend of mine who finished up his pilot, I was inspired to take the approach of doing a small project but, I do not plan on doing this for a while.

How To Write A Story: Fin

After you edit the story publish it.
Let the world view what you have created. Some viewers will critic you writing and others will praise it. But before you listen to others form your own opinion. Your opinion is the most important one.

When you do listen to the comments, discern which ones are to help you with your next project from the comments that are negative. Take the comments that help and your thoughts and move on to the next project. Do not beat yourself up about what you could’ve done differently on this project. Move on.

As I come to a close, I would like to say that I hope that you have been inspired. I enjoy sharing my journey of self-expression. If you are a beginner in the world of writing, don’t give up and don’t compare yourself to others. You may feel like you have nothing to offer or other people are doing what you would like but better. Stop lying to yourself. You are an awesome, unique individual who has something to share. Continue to share regardless. Success or failure, You have something to share.

Let me know about the stories you plan to write!

How To Write a Story: Going Through The Fire of Editing

Editing is a test. I do not like someone else reading what I wrote and critic it. I am sensitive, but writing is helping me get over it. Editing is very necessary. It is the refining process for writing. The process keeps you from being embarrassed and helps your ideas become accessible to others. It’s good to know that someone understands what you wrote.
The resource I like to use is Grammarly. Grammarly forces you to take a second look at your writing and make it as pristine as possible. I have not used the paid version of Grammarly yet, but, someday I would like to.

Grammarly isn’t the only resource there are freelancers or you can even ask your friends. The main goal is to make your idea clear.

If you would like to help me get Grammarly, consider donating at Patreon!

How To Write a Story: Introduction

There are a lot of stories, and a lot of mediocrity, but there is a story that hasn’t been told. You have an idea for the perfect story, but you don’t know how to share it with the world. I was in the same position, but through my years of writing, I have learned some valuable lessons that I would like to share.

I’ve written many stories and explored many different mediums to express myself. These mediums include: storyboarding, book writing and now screenwriting. With this blog series will be a step by step guide on how to write a story. Most of the information that I will be presenting comes from experience. These pointers have helped me, now let me help you. You have the ideas, and I have the plan to make those ideas come to life.

The first step to writing a story is knowing what you want to write about. Think of something that you would like to see in a book or movie. These ideas can include building a world, character or scenario that you want to explore. The idea is the foundation for your story. The idea is the focus of your story and it will help you stay organized.
