Next Steps

OnceUponATimeAfter receiving feedback that isn’t “We’re dying to buy your story,” it’s easy to feel disheartened. I tend to think the answer is to come up with an action plan. It’s also good to have more than one project going.

I have started and laid aside an adaptation of book about the Gilded Age. I’ve resumed work on it and will make it into a play. I’m hoping that theatres are more open to submissions from new writers. Time will tell.

I’m also brainstorming for ways to revise my television series pilot and I’ve written two letters to see if more professionals will read and consider the story.

Fingers crossed.

    You need an agent. It sucks, but that is the reality unless you are truly connected to a network of notable Directors and Head Writers in TV. Good Luck!

      Very true. I’ve sent out one query, but need to do more.

      Also, other aspiring writers, it’s best if you have at least three strong writing samples so whoever considers you sees that you can do more than one thing.
