aspiring writer in hollywood needs help!!!!!!!!
« on: June 18, 2009, 09:32:01 PM »
Guys, i moved out here 8 years ago. i can't believe it's been that long. i'm a writers' assistant on a tv show sitcom. when i first moved out here, i was a PA and submitted some tv scripts i wrote to the WB workshop, and was a finalist, but since then, i've been mired in assistant hell/purgatory and don't get much writing done, and have lost the will/joy/excitement/inspiration to write. i've been fortunate to come close to selling a feature, and i've written 2 episodes of tv sitcom scripts. i guess i'm kind of lucky, but i've yet to have that "break" that pushes me over the line...

i guess what i'm asking is. i need help. perspective. i've lost hope. i need to get inspired again. my soul has been crushed out here. and while i am not the person to give up, i need to find some inspiration, a renewed perspective, you know?

can anyone help? all suggestions welcomed.

Richard

Don't give up, of course, and I think that when I usually find myself uninspired I need to find others who are inspired. A writer's group is a great thing, or even finding others who are in the same situation. Where you are working, I would guess there are many writers with the same issue. Maybe find a few that can share their inspiration.

You can also try writing a new genre. Maybe write poetry or a short story, something that you can publish more easily. Start something new, it might take a while, but it will come back. Just keep going, and you'll find it again. If you need to make a change, make a change, but don't stop writing. Even if you are uninspired, write.
