Operation Achieve Anything: Day Three-Hundred, Dateline 10-27-2018

If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the gowy of growth.
— Mitsugi Saotome

Good afternoon crickets. Welcome to day number three-hundred of Operation Achieve Anything. I can’t believe I’m three-hundred days into this challenge and I’m still waiting for this book to get past the self-help nonsense and get on to actually focus on accomplishing a goal. I’m feeling burnt out once again, so I’m just going to jump right in and get into yesterday’s assignment where I was pretty much told once again to fake it until I make it. Though the lesson didn’t use those exact words, the example used was to force a smile until joy just magically sets in.

Once again, this blog is a perfect example of how I’m already onboard with the message that the book is trying to teach being that when I first started, I felt like a hack since my ability to write standard prose was so weak from decades of writing for the screen. With each passing year, I’ve seen more and more progress. I’m now to the point where I feel less like a hack, and as soon as I go back and clean up my old work, I’ll finally feel comfortable enough to move on to promote this as a professional blog and not just the training ground to get to the next phase of my writing career.

Though I’m not looking forward to faking my way through marketing, it’s the inevitable next move. Speaking of next move, as I said, I’m feeling burnt out, so now I will quickly jump into sharing today’s assignment where I’m supposed to, pretty much just celebrate the fact that I made it to day three-hundred. That’s pretty much it, so I will use this as an opportunity to take a quick break. As always, I’ll share what I end up doing when I check in tomorrow. Until then, it’s now time for me to sign off as usual by saying, good day and good luck to you and all of your projects.

Talk to you soon.

Sincerely,

The Wicker Breaker

I started out with a goal of becoming a paid screenwriter. I had no interest in any other aspect of filmmaking. I received and scholarship to The Vancouver Film School's Writing for Film and Television program where I graduated in 2005. I fell in love with being on set during my first non-school produced short, . I loved being around all the creative people, seeing people having fun while working. The whole liking your job was a new world to me, so I decided to give it a shot. I volunteered for any project I could, doing what ever was needed. The set was my Film School this time. While working as a PA on a feature I was informed that the DP wanted the three tallest PAs to help out in the grip and electric department. That is when I found the department that felt like the best fit for me while I continued to write.
