Writing anything is a truly difficult task. It takes time, massive effort and a willingness to allow the masses to love or destroy your creative endeavor. It's like willingly running with the bulls every day, for the rest of your life. In a digital age where really nothing is deleted, that is the risk you take. [...]
Ever make a mistake that just continuously eats away at you? Part of it is because of the backlash you rightfully deserve, but also you let others down. It's really a difficult thing to process, let alone accept. I compare the situation to one of my diving lessons. When entering the water, we always want to ensure we leave nature as it was before we showed up. I know the intent is to not touch or harm the natural beauty, but the ocean is forever changed by my being there. It is the nature of reality.
Previously, I wrote about writing a novel and what you do with it when it's done. Well, I do write a lot but more screenplays, teleplays etc - I've only got one novel under my belt at this moment in time. I have been grilled and asked religiously "What the hell do I do to get this out there?" I could tell you all day what not to do or what to do - but ultimately you have to do what you feel is right. Not only because you need to feel comfortable in how you sell something/pitch it - but if you have a negative response I might get some blame. SO - I will simply write down what I do but I will warn they are not in any definitive order.
