It’s not the first time I come to think of it, but life is not a movie. We have our hopes it is sometimes, but we all know that even if a story has a happy ending, the rest of the life will not be happy because of it.
Don’t we all have Cinderella-hopes?
I hope that one day the right person will read my script and WHAM it's movie.
Callie Khouri had her first script sold and became the owner of an Oscar. Wow, that’s Cinderella.
But she worked as a music video production assistant. She knew people at the right places. Like Cinderella would have known his father’s cousin’s friend who was the King’s adviser.
I’m sure she had to work hard anyway, but it puts me further away from my Cinderella-ending.
And once I had my “WHAM it’s a movie”-moment I have to swim even harder not to sink and join all the others who only succeeded one time.
I can swim, so I don’t worry much about that. At least not now.
But tell me honestly, don’t you read this blog because you one day want to see the movie and know that you had followed the process of the script’s birth?
I can tell you for sure that even if it is childish I hope this blog will bring me closer to my Cinderella-dream.
