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 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 event and say hi!
