“Creativity is an energy. It’s a precious energy, and it’s something to be protected. A lot of people take for granted that they’re a creative person, but I know from experience, feeling it in myself, it is a magic; it is an energy. And it can’t be taken for granted.” Ava Duvernay

    One of the great things about film is that it’s VERY easy to learn from other people’s mistakes. Learned a TON more listening to this one. THANKS!!!

      Totally! I think sometimes I get so caught up on watching movies I love that I forget to watch some stinkers to make sure I can spot the difference and avoid the same shenanigans in my own work. Good writing often looks way easier than it actually is, right?
