AUDIO BOOKS


If you spend a lot of time in your car like I do, then you probably have different ways to past the time.  One of my favorites is to listen to audio books.  Here are a few that I loved:

YOU ARE A BADASS

By Jenn Sincero

This is an empowering self-help book about improving your life and reaching goals.  Listening to this book on audio will make you feel like Jenn Sincero is your own personal life coach.  This book gave me the courage to sign up for improv classes.  I honestly can't tell you how motivational it is to listen to 30 minutes of this book in the morning before work.  By the time I got to my desk I would feel like - hell yeah!  I'm going to crush this day!

NICKELODEON WRITING FELLOWSHIP


Like many people living in LA, my day job is not – what I like to call – my life job.  A life job is the job you are working towards but are not currently getting paid for.  My life job is screenwriting, and I’ve been working towards turning that life job into a real job for the past four years.

It’s officially February, which means the Nickelodeon Writing Fellowship applications are due at the end of the month (on my birthday!).  For those who are not living the amateur screenwriter life, the Nickelodeon Writing Fellowship is one of the biggest TV writing fellowships out there.  It offers new writers a year-long PAID fellowship, and it has the potential to kick-start a writer’s career in TV.  I’ve been working on a spec episode of BoJack Horseman for my application, but I’m struggling to get through my third draft.  I’ve reached the point where I’ve looked at my script so many times that it doesn’t feel fresh anymore, and I’m getting frustrated. 
 
So I ask you – what do you do to keep yourself motivated?
