WRITE THAT DAMN SCRIPT IN 8 WEEKS
WHY YOU NEED THIS COURSE NOW
The world needs stories now more than ever, especially your stories. Have you ever heard that voice deep inside pleading “pssst….Let me out! This story needs to be told!” but you’ve squashed it down time and time again because “it’s just not ready yet”? Because of the endless demands and expectations of life that keep getting in the way? The bills, the errands, the taxes, the kids, the job, the cats, the and and and…
Well it’s time to bring that voice forward and tell YOUR unique story as only YOU can.
How The Program Works
8 WEEKS TO GET 'ER DONE
This course breaks down the writing process into small, do-able, step by step sections. We start by nailing down that plot so it’s rock-solid BEFORE you start writing, saving you tons of time on painful rewrites. We use timed writing exercises developed by the most influential storytellers of our time to help free your creativity and guide your process, so you’re never stuck writing from nowhere or nothing. Over 8 weeks, these methods will change your relationship to your craft by demystifying the writing process and clearing away the incessant doubt. We break it down, bite by bite, so you make small, steady steps to the final, beautiful, gem of a finished script.
Each week, you’ll receive a video from professional screenwriter Carrie Schrader that describes this week’s goal, group coaching calls, one-on-one sessions, writing exercises, and Carrie's advice from the front lines as a screenwriter-for-hire. You’ll also receive readings and timed writing exercises that jumpstart your creativity and solidify your story arc.
WHAT MAKES THIS COURSE DIFFERENT
You’ll also receive vital motivational tools that will transform your process and build a writing toolbox you'll be able to use for the rest of your life. This course will not only help you write that damn script, but it’ll help you change those damn patterns that have kept you trapped in the spiral of doubt in the past! You’ll create a new writing practice from the ground up that is rewarding and dependable. You’ll learn how to SQUASH those voices that insist you have zero talent, that you’re wasting your time, that you’ll never make it. You'll learn to push through the 3 P's: procrastination, perfection, and paralysis.
Because here’s the secret: You become a writer when you sit down, write, and commit to BEING one. You will BE exactly what you always dreamed by investing energy into creative growth, sustainable patterns, and creating meaning behind your craft… and when that happens, you’ll build more and more of a life you love to live.
