It’s official; I have been accepted to the Danish Film School screenwriting master class. So next year will be pretty busy…
I posted this news to Facebook yesterday and got over a hundred “likes”. So it seems there are people out there who appreciate my efforts to break from the artist to writer side of things. Not that I plan on abandoning the pen completely. Although yesterday I had to go out and buy new pants in the middle of the day because a cup of ink wash slided off my tilted drawingboard and splashed all over me. That made me kind of tired of the whole drawing thing.
I feel very priviliged and thankful when people recognize my writing skills rather than my art skills. And when a prestigious school like the Danish Film School takes me seriously it does wonders for my confidence. As an artist I have thousands of drawings and paid work proving me an artist, but when is it okay to call yourself a writer? When you’ve written a published novel? When you have written a thousand pages? When you’ve written a couple of short stories, or when writing pays your bills?
Anyway, I just wanted to share my thoughts and my excitement. And I’ll be sharing some more tricks on writing next year so it seems. Come on back.
