Raising Your Brainchild: From Nurture to Nature

Good writers have ideas on a daily basis.  These ideas go through a difficult elimination process where they are questioned, ridiculed and all of their flaws are pointed out.  Only the best ideas will survive, but the ones that do make it become apart of the writer.  They become so close that the idea practically becomes a child.

Raising your brainchild is no simple task.  You must feed it, clothe it, and in the end you have to watch it go out into the big, cold world all by itself.  When a script is coming to an end the writer feels a sense of regret but pride and accomplishment accompanies it.  I'm not trying to say that a script is comparable to a child but to a writer the final product of their idea is an offspring from their mind
