Inside A Writer’s Mind: Part Three of Three Series

The final part of the series is something that is ongoing as we speak. After the script is done, and you have done everything possible, you hand it in either to a festival or pitch it. It’s a scary experience, and I am trying my hardest to not overthink it. The hardest thing a writer can do is overthink and feel like their work isn’t good enough.

I have handed in 3 short movies, 1 full-length movie, 1 TV pilot. They are all submitted, and some days are better than others. I sit there and think “crap, why didn’t I do that?”, or “crap should have omitted that part”, and I start nitpicking even after I did all I can for the script. It is torture, and I keep revisiting and reciting it over and over in my head.

The self-doubt is normal and is the hardest to overcome. That is truly why having the support of other writers and having a whole community support each other is vital. Every writer goes through it one way or another. A person who does not write will never truly understand.

Since being on Twitter, I truly have met some amazing writers. it is truly a community and a family that sticks together.  I have seen that every time I am on Twitter. The likelihood that another writer is going through the same thing you are going through is high and being there as support makes a difference.

Rejection is a normal fear that goes with anything. You wonder about the possible rejection, and what you could possibly do next to make it all work. It is a learning process to calm down and embrace the challenge and whatever may come.

I mean rejection has come my way numerous times in the past mainly when it comes to the love life, but the big difference is that there is a lot I can do in the future to make it right for my projects (and of course it’s less complicated than a relationship). No matter what, I hope the journey for all writers will continue no matter the challenge of self-doubt and keep pushing forward with what we all love to do.

One thought on “Inside A Writer’s Mind: Part Three of Three Series

  1. The fear of rejection is the worstttt!! No matter how good I believe that my writing, art, music, etc. is…when it’s time to show it to others…I clam up! I’m anxious for days. “What if I suck at this?” “What if people are laughing behind my back?”

    Luckily, the reviews always come back (mostly) well, and it helps me to build my confidence back up. Hopefully, the same comes for you as well 🙂
