Today is the first day of classes for me and to say I'm nervous is an understatement, Not to mention how confused I am. But I'll get to that.
I'm taking an on-line screenwriting course through the University of Toronto in hopes to:Number one: enhance my writing skills and Two: To learn how to put a story to script.
A co-worker of my husband suggested I look into the screenwriting course and at first I was against it simply because...well, i didn't think I could do it. That is a major problem with me. I lack self-confidence. I'm working on it. I guess part of it is my fear of failure. What if I can't do it? I do;t think. "I can do this" I was the same way when first looking into getting my stories published. I didn't think I had what it took to be a published author. Look at me now. I have 19 books published (was 23 but three are no longer with a publishing company) Whenever I feel down on myself I just check out my website and remind myself that I can do it and I have done it.
Still, going back to school at 45 is scary, even if it is an on-line course.
I've decided to post my progress every Monday from now on which means my usual Wednesday posts will be put on hold for the time being. Though, if I get some hair brained idea i feel like sharing I will definitely be posting it. In the mean time, Monday will be my updates and I would love some encouragement. Every little bit counts, even a hi. :)
So this weeks assignment is to read the "Wilby Wonderful" script. Anyone heard of it? Tell me what you thought about it?
Okay, so that is my news or today, April 23rd, 2012. Stay tuned for more.
