VIP Ignite: How Self-Discipline Shaped Richard Stratton
Screenwriter Richard Stratton is welcomed to a cup of coffee in the green room. In this episode, Mr. Stratton recounts how his background growing up during the Civil Rights movement in the 60’s led to his writing often centering around social activism. He also discusses how being a writer requires self-discipline to force yourself to sit down and work on your writing every day. He suggests that just before bed at night, think about what it is you want to do the next day, write it down, and follow that plan if they want to become disciplined. Summary Writers require discipline, but it’s really a great profession. You are your own boss and can do it on your own time. Stop talking about that great novel you haven’t written yet, and write it! You don’t want to lose excited energy by telling everyone about it. Write it out, don’t talk it out. Whether or not you write your novel, make sure you set yourself down work on your craft daily.
