Let's just say, I'm truly, madly deeply in love with Screenwriting. Over the past 6 years, I've drowned myself in all things Screenwriting. I started out my writing adventures as early as the 2nd grade. I kept writing, and it was just something that was natural to and for me. I always had the chance in school, and during the summer...I wrote and read for fun. As I got older and realized that there could be something here, I kept trying to write novels, but it just wasn't clicking. Then I realized that all of my ideas and stories, are written in a way that made me think I was destined for something movie-related. I Googled, How to Write a Screenplay...6 years later...well, writing Scripts have become second nature at this point. I'm always in the mood, I'm always having the urge, and it's been a fun 6 years. I keep growing, finding myself, and understanding myself more and more each and every time I write. I was always very serious about the career choice, but not until the past couple of years have I really buckled down and developed a stronger addiction, created a great writing habit/schedule, and after all this time...I still can't get enough of it. I'm very confident in my work, my ideas, and my passion. I feel like it's been inside of me for my entire life, but sometimes my family and friends pull me down to earth and remind me that I'm still sort of new to this. That also put in my head, am I too confident? Am I locked into a world in my head that nobody else understands (at least the people who aren't writing too), a world where there aren't any flaws or negativity of any kind (career-wise at least), and when and how confident is too confident? Like, what do others see in me? Do I sound crazy when I talk too positively about this? My head spins with what if's and what-nots when I have a lot of coffee...lol Sometimes, I wonder if being too confident will bite me in the toosh sooner than later? I'm NOT cocky, and I'm very respectful of everyone...and I definitely don't brag or make a scene of any kind (besides the ones I write). ;) But in general, and over-all long term...is being TOO confident a bad thing? Or am I on the right track mentally, emotionally, and spiritually? What do you think? Do you all have similar feelings or wonder this? Have you experienced being too confident and being reminded the hard way that we should chill out a little bit? Or even the opposite, have you felt a low level of confidence, but someone who read your work made you realize you're good or destined for something better than what you think? Just so you know, I do understand this career choice is very difficult and there are times where my confidence...well, sometimes I'm almost too tired to even function or worry about confidence. It took A LOT of work, energy, time, and sacrifices to get to the point of where I'm at now. I respect the hell out of the process, fellow aspiring (and pro) Screenwriters, Actors, Producers, ETC...and I definitely understand a lot more now-a-days VS even just a year ago. The journey has been a process that I wouldn't change. I love learning new things every single day, I love helping others who may need it, and just everything about Screenwriting is the love of my life.
