Screenwriting Dream: Screenwriting dream that continues on

We can't predict the future. All dreamers can hope for is to learn from their mistakes to live a better life. Dreams may never go as planned, but you have to keep trying to pursue them. If your dream is to become a screenwriter, the screenwriting dream will likely create conflict and introduce recurring challenges.

Nearly 16 years ago, I set out to become an actor in Hollywood. Every planned goal turned out to become an utter failure. When I decided to attend one acting program, I ended up going to film school. Instead of going after an acting career, I decided to change my focus to screenwriting.

I served in the U.S. Air Force a few months after deciding to accept the Hollywood dream. Since then, I moved down to Southern California about five years ago to finish my college studies. I earned four college degrees, including a Master's Degree, Bachelor's Degree, and two Associates Degrees.

In the past few years, I worked extremely hard to improve my writing skills. My writing skills were once geared toward writing screenplays and creative writing pieces. In present time, I can write on virtually any subject matter. When you chase after a dream, you will find many people attempting to derail your success. You commonly hear people saying "you're dreaming in the clouds" reference. We would never hold a dream unless we could realistically accomplish the goal.

Don't always believe in the criticism you hear from others. Whereas it is wise to listen, you have to make your own personal choices. Why do people try to disrupt your dreams? I believe dream haters have animosity toward their unfinished dreams. People who fail at accomplishing their dreams may attempt to sabotage your dreams.

The next time you feel like giving up on your screenwriting dream, think about how far you've come to make it to this point in time. The screenwriting dream is worth the challenge, especially since the journey is worth the sacrifice. Reflect back to the exact moment in which imagined your screenwriting dream to find motivation. Stay persistent to continue on the screenwriting journey. You never know when your chance will come to write the next great movie.

Keep trying until you find that one golden opportunity to seize the moment in Hollywood. You can accomplish your screenwriting dream. Good luck!
