In the end I feel pretty good with my project. Although I never ended my movie. But the good thing about 20 time is that it doesn't really end until you decide that it ends. I got a lot done with the screenplay, I at least got enough of it done for a plot to develop. Everything went pretty well during the project. The only thing limiting me was my tendency to become lazy or put things off. Sometimes I would get stuck and not have anything to write about. But that's natural and happens to every writer eventually. If i could do things differently, I would've pushed myself harder to finish my screenplay. I would've finished it early, and then I would've attempted to actually make a movie out of it. It probably would've turned out a disaster, and I would've failed miserably, but I just think it would've been fun and interesting to make a movie. I would've been main character, writer, executive producer, producer, director, sound, casting, etc. But I'll just have to do that next time. During my project I learned that I to write, when I'm making stuff up on paper. I would definitely prefer creative writing over any other style of writing. I also realized how important creative writing is. It's literally everywhere, and it's basically the backbone of our culture. It's in our movies, TV shows, music, books, and basically all of the internet. I also learned that perseverance is key to success, and you shouldn't take shortcuts. Everybody whose succeeded in life has ran into road blocks and had to persevere through it. Some people have succeeded taking shortcuts, but to me those people should have an asterisk to their success because they didn't work hard for it. Anywho, that's my reflection on 20 time.
