Screenwriting survival tip for today... never allow your script to be read before it’s ready. It will only harm the image of the project and you as a writer. Practice patience. All good things in their right time.

a "bible" a "format" and a "pitch" are pretty interchangeable terms nowadays. a "bible" USED to be a guide to a show to inform freelancers pitching episodes; now it's a catch-all for any lengthy description of a show, its characters and its creators' plans.

Criticism of my pilot script frustratingly feels like Critic Whack-a-Mole. One reader says dialogue's a problem. Fix it. Another says description... When you're foot isn't even in the door it feels impossible make it inside.

My feature drama South Side Girls has been selected for second round consideration in the Sundance Development Track! I’m too excited and nervous to get anything else done tonight, but tomorrow it’s back to polishing the latest draft. Wish me luck. 😊

A big CONGRATULATIONS is in order for those who made it into the Semi-finals of the Nichols contest! 🥂. To those who didn't, don't get discouraged. Keep writing and promoting, you're all winners for actually sitting down and writing something.

Productivastination: when you just can’t bring yourself to write or outline, so you curate a list of movies, shows, books, scripts and music to consume that will help with your project. I also call this passive work. It’s a real thing.

I’m in that stage of a project where you walk around in a dream state between this world and the one in your head and it is pure joy.

Am I the only one who can actually *feel* the cut/copied text in their hand and that feeling doesn't go away until it's been pasted, even if it's up to 5 mins later? Yes? 😬👊🏾🤲🏾 ✍🏾

I have high hopes for my screenwriting career. Honestly though, I’d sell a script for a pan of brownies. They’ve got to be good ones though, like right out of the oven.

Received a rejection for a pitch I forgot I even sent out for my script. Their comments were holes with the plot, they were right. Since the time I pitched.... the storyline changed completely. Which in turn changes the synopsis & logline 🤷🏿‍♂️

Nocturnal writing session night 6. I don't feel like writing tonight. But these nights are important. If I find a tangible goal, say revise one scene, I feel a deeper sense of accomplishment if just buckle down and do it. So give it a shot.

I have just sent my first pitch to a producer. How long until I get a rejection letter?
