#Scriptchat Transcript: What is keeping you from going from hobbyist to pro writer?

Tonight, we had a raw and honest discussion of what might be holding us back from being a professional writer, either industry-related or self-inflicted. 

My hope for this topic was to get us to identify hurdles we might be putting in our own way (lack of consistency, writing the wrong concepts, fear of rejection, general insecurities, etc.) so that we can snap out of it and focus on what we can control to succeed.

I applaud everyone who participated and opened up about their fears and roadblocks. Hopefully, we can learn from each other and get to that next level together. Enjoy! @jeannevb
