So, those that know me know that I love TV. I enjoy watching TV shows. It is literally what I do every single day and I especially enjoy shows by Shonda Rhimes. Shonda Rhimes has really been an inspiration to me. I have watched every show that she has ever produced – Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice, Scandal, How to get away with murder, The Catch.
I am just in awe of her mind and I want to live there to know how she thinks. So, I have been having some interest in screenwriting lately. I have been trying to create some amazing stories that can inspire the world, especially Nigerian Television. I believe that there are some stories that need to be told. However, the one thing that has been stopping me is fear. I am so afraid of writing. I have never felt good enough. Even with this blog, it is like a constant battle. I always have to keep reminding myself that I am good enough but most times I don’t believe it.
With finishing from school and trying to get my life started, doing this has become more of a reality for me. I really have so much that I want to share and say and I am currently researching the subject of a story that I want to write. So, when I saw that Shonda Rhimes was offering a masterclass in television writing on Facebook, the timing couldn’t have been any better. Fortunately, my mum was right beside me and I told her that I really wanted to do it and she told me it was a great idea. So, I signed up for it immediately. It is just $90 to pre-enrol as the class starts in 17 days which I think is amazing because THIS IS FREAKING SHONDA RHIMES. I want to learn from the best and be the best and to me, she is one of the greatest to ever do it.
So, I am excited to take this journey and if you are interested in scriptwriting, I honestly think you should consider taking this class as well because it is such a wonderful opportunity.
