THE ZONE VS THE PAUSE
Recently I took a look at two completely different ends of the spectrum when it comes to a screenwriter’s rhythm.
One is a fast paced, adrenaline pumping explosion. The other slows the creative fire down but your imagination still burns just as bright.
Both are seemingly different on the surface offering completely different ways to fill up the pages. Either way it’s screenwriting and it’s an addiction.
“There are many paths to the top of the mountain but the view is always the same at it’s peak.”
I love that quote…
Where do you stand?
Personally, I prefer The Zone. It’s such an incredible feeling to fall into a trance and just write until you catch up to your imagination. However, there are still times when I enjoy solving a tough story problems that halt my progress. The thing is, solving these problems is pretty amazing as well.
At the end of the day, the pages are still filled with words no matter how long it takes you to write them down. It just depends on your creative state of mind in that moment.
