I pitched a script to a large production company and a major studio last week. Both passed.
While these definitely weren't the results I was hoping for, I know this is just one of the many potholes on the long and twisting road to success.
It didn't work out this time, and that's just the way it goes. My desire and drive have in no way been diminished. I'm just as determined to keep at it, both for writing and getting somebody to tell me "yes".
It's easy to get discouraged trying to make it in this business. But you have to be willing to endure each time things don't work out for you, and that'll happen a lot more than you realize. Hopefully you can learn from it so as to help increase your chances for next time. Maybe it'll even inspire a new approach. There's no one way to do this.
Giving up is easy. Keeping at it is tough. Frustrating as it can be, opt for the latter.
In the long run, you'll be glad you did.
