Everyone has great story ideas, but most of these stories never see the light of day. The art of writing is getting these stories out on paper and sharing them with the world. It all sounds very easy, but I can tell you from my own experience that it isn’t. Writing is an adventure with a lot of tough challenges and setbacks along the way. There are rules to follow and writers blocks to overcome.
I learned it all the hard way when I wrote my first feature screenplay ‘Scary’, which took me over two years to complete. It was a struggle from start to finish, but we learn from struggles, they teach us things, and looking back at this period, it has been one of the most insightful periods of my life, and so I started to write on a new story, eager to struggle again and learn some more.
Currently, I have written one feature screenplay, two shorts, and one comic, and I’m currently in the process of writing a new feature. Some of my screenplays have been featured on The Red List and participated in international contests. For me, writing is purely a hobby at the moment. I like doing it, and people from inside and outside of the industry seem to appreciate my work.
