Secrets of Successful Screenwriting: Open-Mindedness

Openmindedness 1000x400

#17 OPEN-MINDEDNESS

The most successful writers do not pretend to know everything. Rather, they each have a natural sense of adventure to experience the world and interact with new and different people. They are continuously learning from others and about oneself. It is in these experiences that the building blocks for accessible and relatable stories and characters begin. 

Being open-minded requires tackling one’s own fear of the unknown. Don’t shy away from things you don’t completely understand. Take a keen interest in them and learn what you need to learn to understand, approach and tackle the unknown with zeal and passion.
