WHAT'S GOING ON, BROOKE? Currently, I'm developing new work with director Leigh Silverman and getting ready to start the "From Screenplay to Pre-Production" filmmaking lab at NY Women in Film and TV with a feature adaptation of my play OUT OF THE WATER. Much of the writing for OOTW was produced during the Lilly Foundation's first annual retreat for women writers and our children at SPACE at Ryder Farm. Huge shout-outs to SPACE and to the Lilly's for supporting working mothers. My pilot INFLUENCE was a finalist for this year's Sundance Episodic Story Lab. NYWIFT SPACE
NINE WEEKS TO A FIRST DRAFT 9 JUICY WEEKS TO A WONDERFULLY IMPERFECT FIRST DRAFT: A CREATIVITY PROGRAM FOR WRITERS
Whenever I teach writing, I find that the hardest part for my students is getting first draft on the page and trusting that this first draft is allowed to be, in Anne Lamott's words, "shitty.". So I wrote an ebook designed to help screenwriters, playwrights, and even fiction writers put down their first draft. I've found that these techniques can really make writing a lot easier — you're still going to sweat, but the process will be a lot less painful. It may even be fun! Right now it's available as a Kindle ebook: Amazon.com: 9 Juicy Weeks to a Wonderfully Imperfect First Draft: A Creativity Program for Writers eBook: Brooke Berman: Kindle Store.
