I’ve interviewed dozens of screenwriters about their craft, and I find this common thread among them: screenwriters are BRAVE! Bravery comes in many forms, and for writers, I’ve seen it in their willingness to be vulnerable, and their propensity to risk leaving everything comfortable behind to pursue an often-rocky career path in screenwriting.
Candee Kramer, a screenwriter, and a semi-finalist in our “So, Write Your Bills Away” Sweepstakes,” is a shining example of taking your career into your own hands when life leaves you unsatisfied.
“I knew I wanted to be a screenwriter when I discovered drinking on the job and staying employed are mutually exclusive,” she joked.
Paid or not, Candee kept working to hone her craft.
Candee is currently rewriting that first script she ever wrote, keeping one of her favorite pieces of advice in mind.
Candee charmed me with her wit, a skill that’s not necessarily easy to do over the written word. Even her emails made me laugh out loud! So, it was no surprise to me that her dream is to write comedy.
