What’s a defining moment in your life? M

What’s a defining moment in your life? My favorite professor at Chapman – Bill Rosenthal – told us something on the first day of my introductory screenwriting class. “If you can see yourself doing anything else with your life, if you can see happiness or success in literally any other career path, go do that other thing instead. Because this path is too long and too arduous, and there are too many other people who will want it more. But…” (it was here that Bill took a pregnant pause, and I noticed several students looked nauseous) “if you have no idea what else you would do with your life besides write, then let’s get started.” For the first time, I realized I had zero idea what I would do besides tell stories. This a tricky business, and it beats people down, and you have to have unyielding persistence and unwavering passion. I made a choice that day, and it solidified my path.
