OMG April!!!! I first just wanted to send you some Love!!!
You have no idea how you are changing my life. You give so much. So much of yourself. So much information. So much lovejoyfiercenessgetyourshittogethernoexcusesnurturingwithoutcoddling bad assness. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
Sometimes you are giving so much to so many that I can't keep up, so it's taken me some time, but I am always working.... 2 of your videos cracked open a block for me in one night...tonight.
1) The first of the 3 writer's videos where you talk about the outline and the inciting incident. I have a story that just won't leave me alone, and your video gave me some life tonight.
2) A video about the emotional chords. I have been wrestling with those damn emotional chords for Months now. I have to say, I was very discouraged. Going through all those movies to find the right 10 moments is very daunting. I never did it. But I Have been doing a combination of going back and watching stuff, remembering/thinking of the moments/scenes/characters that shook me, analyzing the characters I've been cast as and which ones I fell in love with, and observing myself as I walk through life. And something about that video tonight, made me burst into tears, and then (what I think are) my 4 emotional chords came pouring out like liquid diamonds in the desert sun! All bright and shiny!!!
I'm so close. And that is very exciting So, thank you, April. You are everything.
