“I discussed with John Raffo, in regards to my progress slowly down a bit on writing. I explained to him that my discipline has been taking a considerable toll, as I told him that I feel the pressure of time constraints and pressure from others, as if I had deadline to commit to. John told me, and I completely understand and agree, that the worst offender and last thing that a creative artist should worry about, is time. He then suggested that I could schedule another day with my mentor to finish up my screenplay’s first draft, as the absence of the thought of anything to worry about will greatly assist me in my writing discipline and progress. I am grateful of my screenwriting mentor’s encouragement, advice, and thorough logistics and common knowledge towards a writer’s creative process. Or rather, a writer’s journey. I’m going to finish what I started.”
Every week we ask our students to review how they are progressing with our program.
