    In my head

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Rob_G, Nov 9, 2013.

    In my head, the words flow and sound like the makings of a best seller. Once down on paper however, reality hits home :)

    But don't be discouraged by the reality. The reality is that it's not easy, else everyone would have a book gracing the shelves (or webpages) of your local book seller.

    same goes for seeing great moves and shots in your head vs trying to get the ball in the hoop on the court... 'knowing how' doesn't always = being able to carry it out in practice...

    Yeah, I've scrapped an entire script and started over because once it was down on paper, it didn't feel the same.

    I don't know if there is a word or phrase for it, but I like to call it the objectiveness of paper.

    I never thought of it like that before, but yes you're right.

    Discouraged, never. Frustrated, often :)
