Having a support system, working on your craft, sharing tips, and knowing when to ask for help are all equally important and essential for success. Let me help you help yourself.
Blog: I rip open my wounds and hand you the salt shaker. Why? Because, as writers, we need to be raw and vulnerable in order to do the same for our characters. I also blog about screenwriting on Script magazine on the intricacies of the film industry to help novelists and new screenwriters understand the realities they face. My column, Balls of Steel™, is one of Stephanie Palmer’s Top 10 Screenwriting Blogs and Screenwriting Staffing named it one of Ten Screenwriting Sites Every Screenwriter Should Bookmark.
Consultations: Many writers have approached me over the years, wanting my Balls of Steel™ advice on how to build their own online and offline network, get their material read by Hollywood executives, turn their novels into screenplays, start a website, use Twitter, face their haunting fears, find the perfect margarita… you name it, they ask it.
Let me help you help yourself. Pick my brain, one-on-one, with my consulting services via Skype or telephone, or even in person, should we be in the same area.
Lectures: One of my favorite experiences is connecting with writers in person at conferences, pitchfests and universities. I share advice on everything from facing fears to navigating Hollywood from my New York State home. Join me at my next Balls of Steel™ event and say hi!
