How long have you been writing screenplays?

8 years total and of that... 3 years when I began to have usable knowledge of structure, etc.

What are your screenwriting goals?

To improve my craft & be a professional screenwriter bringing thought provoking, creative material to life faster than I have been.

What have you found most helpful in achieving your goals?

I need a schedule & to branch out of my comfort zone. Me joining this group & BEING ACTIVE here... is branching. It's a big step & excitingly terrifying to an introvert. I've been moving at a snails pace - I may be the slowest writer in the west. In honesty, I've been asleep for too long & need a kick to get my work out. I must stop bad habit of rewriting before finishing first draft, overworking things & I need to be held accountable.


Hi. I'm a Venice screenwriter/artist.­ Looking to branch out & befriend community with shared passion. I'm shy & it's too easy to isolate in my work. I love film, salad, art, activism. Have written several quirky dramas. Favorite film Harold & Maude.

What Mary W. is saying about this Meetup Group

Fabulous for an introvert to get out and mingle with other interesting, talented writers! Its supportive, donation based & I kick myself for not joining sooner.
