RELAXING

 

 

I need to have an ‘enjoy myself’ philosophy. Get comfortable with writing until my body tenses up or my brain gets logjammed – and then just doing something else, relaxing until I get the signal in my head telling me it’s time to go back to the keyboard.

 

When I'm feeling stressed out at the thought of trying to finish something - whether it be a script, an Act, or a scene - set myself a couple of small goals.

 

 

 

Quite often when I'm starting a dialogue draft, I won't shave until the story has quickened and the dialogue is coming naturally and rapidly out of me. Unfortunately, the beard stops me from sleeping well).

Taking a break between drafts means ideas are popping into my head all the time –scribble down images & snippets that’ll flesh out scenes. Guess I’m refuelling.

The more important I think a scene is, the longer it seems to take me to write (I freak out, because I need to get it "right").

 

But every scene should be important. Every scene and moment needs to contribute.

 

I'll need to develop ways of de-freaking-out:

I need to relax and have fun while I'm writing:

HOW?
