There must be something comforting about three. People always give up after three.Sherlock Holmes, Sherlock
This Emerging Writer has survived as a blog for three years and what an interesting three years it has been. We have survived days jobs for little to no pay, come close to eviction, lost friends (real and pretend), met new friends (and they’re keepers), began the transition toward indies, got new representation and directed a short.
Wow, that was a lot. No wonder I’m exhausted. That said, there is no rest for emerging writers. For TV writers pilot season has ended and staffing is gearing up. Indie features are hotter than ever. Streaming and web series are creating new show runners overnight. How do you adjust to the new normal? Pick a lane and drive hard. We survive the struggle. We sacrifice. We carry on. So as much as I love Sherlock, he’s wrong about people always giving up after three. No me. I’m just getting started.
… and to everyone who wrote on my timeline about that other event today: Thank you!!!
