… am rereading a book called Do The Work, by Steven Pressfield.
There are a number of gems in this short (98 page) book.
Here’s what he says regarding a screenplay he wrote that bombed as a movie:
“My friend Tony Keppelman snapped me out of it by asking if I was going to quit. Hell, no! ‘Then be happy,’ he said. ‘You’re where you wanted to be, aren’t you? So you’re taking a few blows. That’s the price for being in the arena and not on the sidelines. Stop complaining and be grateful.'”
Here’s to being in the arena.
