Go Into The Story is easily one of my favourite screenwriter’s blogs out there, written by Scott Myers. All his posts are excellent and filled with very useful and interesting insights, information, industry news and interviews.Amongst all the insights and very handy resources I’ve found that the blog post which stuck with me the most is this one: 1, 2, 7, 14
Even though I find it very hard to achieve all of that list, it gives me very clear objectives for each week. In 2016 I usually managed very different amounts – 0 scripts read, 2-3 movies watched, 1 page (re)written, 1 hour of research/prep. Not very good, eh? But still, at least I knew how much I was falling short by.
Now, this year, with my slate clean of financial burden (other than once-off crap) and consequently my mind clear of worry, I am ready to start pulling very different numbers!
