Alright, alright, alright. Anthony Michael here. Real pleasure to be a part of this forum. I'm an actor/writer who is (finally) committing himself to the Stephen Adley Guirgis writing philosophy of "Sit Down. Stay Down." That is, having the professional mindset of diligently cranking out the pages. At 27-years-old, I'm finally coming to grips that I've been doing this writing thing entirely wrong. Most of my projects are unfinished, a byproduct of a self-destructive, perfectionist mentality that never got me past the halfway point for countless first drafts. So I'm rewiring my neural-pathways by allowing my first drafts to suck. Big time suck, in every way possible. By doing that, I've rediscovered the joy in writing again. I also decided that finding a community of other wordsmiths would do wonders for accountability--in addition to learning more about the craft. Anywho, that's all she wrote in a nutshell. Pleasure to meet y'all.
