On these photos are the results of my first screenplay and stage play in the 2019 year on the screenwriter’s world professional platform Coverfly and results from world competition ScreenCraft for Family TV Show and play for theater. Step by step . . .
These are wonderful stories – a play for theater and a TV Show. But I want to add for that something more . . .
Some other news about other steps . . . My story from Belarusian to English and editing from my Lion-husband Joff . . . Two hearts together . . . Heart-to-Heart . . .
It is a world competition for professional screenwriters. It has thousands of entrants from all over the world. It is in the English Language and includes very different style screenplays. I entered because I wanted to share what my heart wants to say . . .
I want to share a little more about these stories because it is not only the results that are important . . . And if you ask me, “Olga why do you write screenplays for Families?” My answer is, “It is my Life, my Love, and my Dream.”
Where are Fairy Tales live?
Children have asked me this question many times. “They live in the same place where we all live. We have one common house, our Earth.” I answer and ask, “Where do you think they live?”
I have heard many answers that have amazed me. The depth of a child’s answer continues to demonstrate the value of childhood and seeing life through their eyes.
“Fairy tales live near us, we just need to listen to hear them. I hear them, and they are very beautiful!” This answer from a 4-year-old boy. “Where do you listen to them?” I asked. He answered by placing his hand on his chest. “Here . . . ”
I penned my first play in my Mom’s kindergarten class . . . 🙂
The actors were 4 and 5 years old and I was 9. The play was a great success and soon our group of actors was invited to other kindergartens.
Since my childhood, I have had a dream to write scripts and draw heroes for children’s films. As an adult, I found other paths but they always had a connection with children.
I continued to paint and write notes or poems, but I never considered a professional career as a writer and artist.
Sometimes Life asks us, “Are you really ready to follow your Dream?” My heart kept my childhood dream and, many years later I went back to my Dream . . . but with many life experiences, especially of being a mom . . .
Follow to your heart . . .
I have successful experience creating theater plays, TV children programs in Belarus. You can read about here.
And . . . if you ask me now, “Olga why do you write screenplays for Families?” My answer again is, “It is my Life, my Love, and my Dream.” And I continue to follow my Dream. More about new screenplays here.
We all have a heart . . .
Our hearts are wiser, but sometimes we don’t hear it . . . because our mind likes to speak louder 🙂 But when we believe in ourself, following our heart, we find the best way to celebrate our life. When you know “What” and “Why”, Life helps us find “How” and “When” . . .
“If you have a dream, and believe in yourself, your dream will come true!” – from the fairy tale “Dandelion and his Dream” in the “Magic Fairy Tales for children and parents” 🙂
Listen to your heart and follow your dreams! With love, Olga Verasen
