Back In Class… (writing class that is…)

Posted: February 18, 2010 in Uncategorized

Dreading to start this new writing class or “re-writing” class that is… They say the key to writing a good script is in the “re-writing”! I don’t dread class because I think its going to be bad, in fact, I know it will be good for me… I just dread it because it “class”, school y’know? I gradutated high school a lifetime ago and didn’t go to college… Well, I did go to junior college for all of 1 day. Santa Monica city college, two classes, “drawing” & “photography”… No hot chicks in either class, dropped out in my first week… I think SMC may still owe me for a refund from dropping out so quick… I just think, maybe I don’t like “school”. But I must admit, I like when I’m in class, it makes me get back into the mind set of working on a craft… This time its writing, which I do love doing, but don’t do nearly as much as I should. I haven’t even looked at my play since the reading of the first draft months ago. But starting this class and rereading my play & beginning to write new pieces, its nice to revisit these character’s and hear them talking in my head again. I guess like most artist, I am a procrastinator and need deadlines to fulfill my potential. Looking forward to going through the process of rewriting “Midnight Makeout Session” and maybe even get me inspired to blog more!

    I know what you mean. I’ve been contemplating going back to school for “drawing” as I would like to one day work in the comic biz. But lately I’ve been thinking about going back for writing because as a child I was always writing short stories, and I think I would be more suited for it than being an artist.

    I do feel you’re pain though. After a long hiatus away from school and academic facilities, it feels so weird to go back. The closest I got was a night class one day a week, and even that was too much of a shock for me. Guess you just gotta ease her in.

    Good luck with the screenplay, and I hope to see it out there one day.

    School is school, you know? Interesting? Yes. Fun? Not really.

    “I guess like most artist, I am a procrastinator…” < My worst enemy is procrastination. I was going to explain why, but maybe i'll do it later…

    Good Luck with your re-write class.
