Stuck somewhere for another 30 Days? (Who isn’t?) Try this.
Even though some areas of the country are loosening their restrictions a touch, it looks like we’re all still gonna be stuck inside for the next 30 days.
I know, I know, believe me.
And while it’s important to feel all the feelings that we’re ALL feeling about not being allowed to live like we used to live . . .
It’s also important to do what Stephen Schwartz said on my very second livestream:
“We can look at this as an opportunity – that we’ve been given a gift of time we might not ordinarily have.”
At the beginning of every month, we always send out a tweet about our 30 Day Script Challenge, the free program we created to help TheaterMakers get those great ideas out of your head and on to a page (because only then can they get on a stage).
But never before has this Challenge seemed more timely.
Because while things won’t be back to “normal” in 30 days, this gift of time is running out. So if you said to yourself, “I’m going to take advantage of this time and finally write that thing I’ve always wanted to write,” but still haven’t written it . . . sign up for the challenge. It’s free. And what’s the worst thing that could happen . . . you still don’t write it? You end up exactly where you are now?
Now, ask yourself . . . what’s the best thing that could happen? Seriously. What could happen when you finish the script?
So go for it. It’s free. It’s fun. And it works. Our 30 Day Script Challenge has produced more scripts than we can count from past participants.
The next 30 Day Script Challenge starts in just 3 days, on June 1st, so sign up today. And just think – by July 1st, you’ll have a completed first draft.
Take the Challenge here.
(Oh – we recently surveyed past participants on how to improve The Challenge – and we got some fantastic suggestions from “check-ins,” coaching, “what do I do when it’s done” action steps and more – so I hired Eric Webb, added some tech features, and more to create an “Ultimate” version which you can see here.)
Well, it finally happened. Last night, the Davenport clan watched…
Here’s what TheaterMakers were talking about this week . ….
What we forget about the theater, and especially Broadway, is…
[ANNOUNCEMENT] Applications now open for our 2nd Annual Dr. Kenny Encouragement Fund Scholarship for TheaterMakers!
I can’t believe it. It has already been a year…
If you are unsure of what Broadway is? THIS. IS….
Ken created one of the first Broadway podcasts, recording over 250 episodes over 7 years. It features interviews with A-listers in the theater about how they “made it”, including 2 Pulitzer Prize Winners, 7 Academy Award Winners and 76 Tony Award winners. Notable guests include Pasek & Paul, Kenny Leon, Lynn Ahrens and more.
