EXT. I'm Baaack! - TWILIGHT
I remember completing some scripts and taking some writing classes. Then, I started looking for representation, got sucked into improv, took a lot of classes, interned with a manager, interned at an agency, became an agent, made some sh!t happen and finally... retired/returned to get back to writing by way of talent management/production.
Work always leads to more work.
Do I have insight? Yes indeed. Having been inside a boutique agency for two years, my eyes were opened. It was worse, far worse than I imagined. And easier, much easier than I imagined.
Take classes. Take a lot. Of. Classes.
