It takes a while. It’s gonna take you a while.

It’s normal to take a while.

And you just have to fight your way through that.

You will be fierce. You will be a warrior, okay? And you will make things that aren’t as good as you know in your heart want them to be.

And you will just make one after another.

  • a series of actions can create suspense, anecdotal reliving
    • ask questions to keep viewers or readers guessing
    • have a moment of reflection: does it mean anything? answer the audience’s question – is it new information?
  • a good story has action, then reflection and back, interweave them
  • kill things that you had a feeling could be better
  • leave behind the crap, start new and enjoy throwing away bad work
  • if you get through enough material, you will eventually find something special
    • your goal is making something that’s memorable
    • but most of the steps in the beginning will lead you to no tangeable outcome
    • yet you will take away experience and often luck will lead you to where you need to be, right time at the right moment
  • creative people want to be creative because you have good taste
  • your own work is not as good as your taste
    • you know it’s crappy but you need to get over it
    • you will see the deprecancy between yourself and your passions, your idols
  • it. is. normal. keep at it
    • create deadlines
    • get out the work, you have to keep going to close the gap
  • i love that he talks about how much he sucked himself, at 27 😅
  • beginner’s mistakes: be yourself, do not imitate your experiences of media
  • why talk like another person when this other person already exists?
