OPTIONED SCREENWRITER REVEALS WHY IT TOOK HIM YEARS TO UNDERSTAND HOW INSPIRATION WORKS...
... AND HOW YOU CAN DO IT MUCH FASTER
(CAUTION: IT'S HARD!)
I’m not going to lie.
Inspiration doesn’t come overnight.
To be honest, on some days it doesn’t even show up at all.
But if you are a person who really wants to take their writing career seriously and get ahead, here might be something for you.
It’s something that I would have liked to know almost ten years ago when I started my screenwriting endeavours.
Had I known then what I know now I could have probably cut down the time to get where I am now in half.
Or maybe even less than that.
Before I talk about what it is I should warn you though. For the sake of honesty.
Because this might not be for you. Depending on what kind of person you are.
Because if you’re not the right person for it, I don’t even want you to spend time on it. You’ll just see it as a complete waste of time and you’ll probably start whining and complaining about it.
So, if you’re a person who is looking for an easy shortcut to writing success, that is not for you.
If you are a freebie-seeker, who isn’t willing to invest in terms of time and energy and whatever might be necessary to get ahead, then this is not for you.
If you’re a person who always blames others for things that don’t work out for you instead of taking control of your own life, this is not for you.
Also, if you’re one of those writers who thinks, if they just wait long enough, at one point inspiration will strike them like lightning and this multi-million-dollar idea will just pop into their head and turn them into overnight success practically all by itself, again, this is not for you.
And this is not some half-assed backwards psychology marketing trick attempt.
I mean it.
If you’re one of those people I just mentioned, I don’t even want you on my mailing list.
Because if you join my mailing list you’ll get up to daily, free inspirational tips for writers, which a lot of people value.
But if you’re one of the people mentioned before, I don’t want you there. Because I don’t want to pay for you. Mailing lists cost money and my list is reserved for writers who take what they do seriously, who are decent human beings and want to develop as writers and above all as people.
Now, having given you that as a disclaimer, so to speak, what you can get, if you’re not one of the people above, is, a monthly, paid newsletter series that will help you discover for yourself how inspiration works.
And how over time you will transform your writing.
It contains things that I wish someone had told me a lot earlier.
But no one teaches this.
The thing is, I, for a very long time, I had this assumptions that inspiration is something that is just given. Something that you have or you don’t. Something that just strikes you. And if it doesn’t, you’re out of luck.
But then I looked at how professional writers work and it has very little to do with waiting for inspiration to strike.
Or put in other words, over the course of several years, they learned how to tip the odds in favor so that inspiration COULD strike.
And apart from that, going through rough patches during which my writing suffered, myself, I discovered, that a lot of what prohibits inspiration has nothing to do with the writing itself.
That’s why hardly anything of this is taught in writing classes.
But rather, it has to do with everything that’s going on around what writing.
In your life.
Who you are as a person.
And your willingness to develop as a person
That’s why I hope until this point all the people that I mentioned before have clicked away and stopped reading or listening, so that only you, the ones who try to get out of their comfort zones…
… who try to become better people …
… to become more inspired …
… in order to become better writers …
are still on.
So, here is the thing.
This paid, monthly newsletter, it’s called “Creativity Now!”
But you can’t sign up for it… just yet.
This is not the secret sauce to turn you into a superhero writer overnight.
(Which never happens by the way.)
This is work.
Most people don’t want to hear this.
They keep running around all their life, trying to look for the easy solution, the easy fix, the cheat, that will make them rich and successful in an instant.
That’s not it.
I don’t know if my “Creativity Now!” Newsletter is going to make you rich and successful, but I’m absolutely convinced that if you’re willing to take an honest look at yourself, and apply the thoughts and techniques I give you, you will be a happier person, you will be more inspired, and this will make you a better writer.
And the rest depends on you.
Maybe you’ll get rich and successful. Maybe you won’t.
Alright, so, here is the thing.
I want to make sure that you really know what you’re getting yourself into.
So that there is absolutely no misunderstanding about what this information I’m teaching you is about.
So, before I let you sign up for the “Creativity Now!” monthly Newsletter, you need to go through my eBook “33 Inspiration Techniques”.
For now. I’m thinking about selling it, actually, because it’s valuable stuff. But for now it’s free.
So, download this eBook and really read it!
It’s very short, you could read one tip in a couple of minutes if you wanted.
But I don’t want you race through it!
Because it’s not about the amount of information in there.
It’s about, if you can make the mind switch and start to see, what are the things that are keeping you from being inspired in your life, one at a time.
So, do that!
Go through it chapter by chapter and think about the stuff that I talk about.
Really make it your own.
Just read one tip a day or even a week maybe.
And really try to apply this to your life!
(But don’t feel bad about it if it’s hard in the beginning – that’s okay. Don’t give up!)
It’s a process. Don’t worry. Just take the next step.
That’s all there is. The next step. And then the next one.
I believe every writer who goes at it seriously can be, or can become, inspired and transform their writing.
So, for most people it’s just a matter of staying on the journey.
Alright, I’m closing this out.

And if you still think the “Creativity Now!” Newsletter is for you you sign up via one of the links in my daily inspirational emails you will get once you’re on my mailing list.
I really want to make sure you understand that this is about a journey and not a “quick fix”.
Okay, that’s all for now.
