A New Year and a new meme
Happy New Year to everyone. I am determined to get the Justin Hustlin promo live this year and also produce one my shorts 'Lost' as an animation.
Meanwhile, Lucy tagged me thus:
'When it comes to writing, what do you know you're good at, and what aspect of writing are you worst at? (Procrastination is not permitted as either part of the answer.)'
Fortunately I am not given to huge amounts of procrastination. Life's too short!
Hmmm, let me see. I like writing dialogue and have been complimented on it though it's not necessarily the first thing I think to write. I think my worst is structure which I've been trying hard to amend. I find Chris Soth's mini-movie method very useful for this problem as it divides a script into eight manageable chunks. In common with everyone else, I'm better with subjects I feel passionate about though some subjects are just too close to home, like caring for someone with a disability. I've found my counselling course very useful for character insight (particularly motivation) and I want to develop that in 2009.
I now tag Dave, Jon and Sheiky.
