Thinking like a Writer



Writers learn how to view things a certain way, whether it’s something interesting they may see on the Television news, to something unique about everyday life, or even a daydream.

It’s about developing a perspective and staying true to that for the sake of the Story.

 Our brains are constantly filtering information and telling us what is important and what isn’t.

If you change the parameters of the input, the output will inevitably be altered.

What was a difficult situation when it happened might become a great Story, and one that could help somebody else avoid a similar scenario.

Writing takes practice, just like any skill.

More than that, it necessitates developing a certain workflow–one that will allow the project to remain manageable no matter the length or complexity.

Most people get overwhelmed by their own lack of knowledge of the process and freeze up at some point.

They don’t have a roadmap, and they inevitably get lost.

For the beginning Writer/Filmmaker, I am attempting to provide a roadmap, and for the veteran Writer/Filmmaker, perhaps a few new tools to use.

This is not about being formulaic by any means, but about having a process that invites rather than inhibits creativity.
