GOOD STUFF

3 Gratitudes – write down three new things you are grateful for everyday

Journaling – write about one positive thing that you have experienced every 24 hours

Exercise – teaches your brain that your behavior matters

Meditation – spend some time, even just 5 minutes a day, sitting still with your eyes closed in silence, this will train your brain to focus on one thing

Random Acts of Kindness – write one positive email or note thanking or praising someone in your social support network every day

NWSG and energy entertainment

Kudos to the NWSG.

On Saturday, March 31, the Northwest Screenwriters Guild hosted manager, Angelina Chen of Energy Entertainment. http://www.energyentertainment.net/

She lead a lively discussion on a manager’s role in a writer’s career, and offered her insights.

A good time was had by all.
