When It Comes To Writing Film/TV…

Should You Work With A Writing Coach?

It really depends…

…on how much time you have.

You see, most writers waste most (if not all) of their time.

And I’m not just talking about procrastination and writer’s block.

You waste time when you:

  • Go in the wrong (creative) direction
  • Work with the wrong people
  • Develop the wrong projects
  • Keep hitting dead ends

That’s how to drain your creativity and waste literally YEARS of your time.

There are good writers with good ideas who didn’t succeed simply because they worked on the wrong ideas with the wrong people and ran out of time, energy, and enthusiasm.

Hi, I’m Ryan Dixon.

(This is my good side…)

  • I’m a professional screenwriter with projects in development with Disney, Amazon, and Universal.
  • For many years I managed ScriptShark, a screenplay development company, worked as a screenplay reader, provided feedback on thousands of film/TV scripts, and coached many beginning and professional writers.
  • I’ve worked closely with Stephanie Palmer for many years, and I have successfully used Stephanie’s system for writing, networking, and pitching (and it’s what I teach my clients).

The Difference A Writing Coach Makes

My job is to make sure you head in the right direction, avoid the traps of Hollywood film/TV writing, get the information you need, and reach your goals.

It’s easy to get a great idea for a screenplay, wait to show it to anyone before you make it absolutely perfect…. then find out you’ve built something no one wants to buy.

It’s easy to meet people at parties, start generating meetings, and feel like you’re getting somewhere… only to realize that you haven’t sold a thing and now your phone calls stop getting returned.

Your written work, networking strategy, and meeting technique can be off by a little bit… and throw off your success by a lot.

Just like a ship trying to navigate across an ocean – even a few degrees off in your compass heading can lead you hundreds of miles off-track.

Are You Ready?

One session of honest consideration and coaching can help you:

  • Get clear on your career strategy
  • Take the next logical step to making your project successful
  • Overcome fear, self-doubt, and paralysis
  • Save you months (even years) of struggle, frustration, and heartache

In a one-hour consult with me you can discuss whatever is most important to you, including:

  • Improving your story ideas, loglines, and scripts
  • Up to 10 pages of material
  • Career and agent/manager advice
  • Networking, pitching, and tactics for meeting with VIPs
  • Any of your screenwriting questions
