We all know to show, don’t tell. But sometimes knowing what to do, and ‘how to’, are two different things. As I study the art of using perfect words to paint a picture for the big screen, I realize that I’m learning how to create pictures for my novel too. While we all love books and reading, I suggest you watch a movie and pay attention to how those pictures create feelings and emotions. See the action they show. And if you have an urge to read, pick up a screenplay book. You’ll find some useful tools within the pages. I did.
Remember, no matter how large the challenge is, it’s nothing but an opportunity to grow, learn, and become the best you can be.
Enjoy every moment!
