Okay, so I’ve done McKee’s bootcamp, done top screenwriting graduate school work, ScreenwritingU… Won a couple of big screenwriting contests, but for whatever reason, your 45-day online class has worked magic. Was I just ready for the message? Is it just a manageable format to undertake? Some of both? I don’t know, but I am one happy camper. I have been messing with this script idea for about two years, then I complete something MUCH DIFFERENT in 45 days. Thank you!!

I just wanted to say THANK YOU for creating the “TV Drama Pilot in 45 Days” course. This was the best investment I’ve ever made as a writer! I’m on Day 17 and have learned so much more about my pilot (I scrapped the old one altogether!) I’ve written the teaser and am in Act One still, but the daily lessons keep me focused and encourages me to go deeper with my characters and their journeys. I’m so excited about the possibilities of this story that I don’t know what to do with myself (the series is set during the Great Depression). I also like the fact that the lessons arrive in my inbox at around the same time every morning. I’m up at 6am writing and then when I see the lesson, I’m ready to go! Thank you, thank you, thank you.
