Whether your creative writing is for film, television or publishing, CreatorsVault.com hopes that you have established goals and objectives as the New Year is now in progress. Personal resolutions aside,your Creative Projects require serious commitment in order to be successful. There are so many nuances and details to consider, but it is worthwhile to reconsider the basic sequence for your writing goals as a foundation.
CREATE – Almost all creative projects begin with a Great Idea. Whether your Idea is a screenplay, book/novel, music, or another tangible medium, creation of your project relies on your inherent and developed skills. An important factor will be your intent to continually improve and enhance the skills of your craft. There are an array of sources available via education, blogs, and websites that offer tips, suggestions and guidance to assist improvement of your writing and creative skills. A good example to consider is Screencraft at https://screencraft.org/ for consultation, e-books, e-courses and more.
PROTECT – After your creative project is completed, it is crucial that you secure IP Registration for copyright protection before you expose the project to others or begin the marketing process. You can accomplish IP Registration at www.CreatorsVault.com which establishes date/time and secure archival of your project for a selected period of time. This is important and can be used as evidence in a court or with an arbitration panel should a case of infringement occur.
MARKET – Once your creative project is protected, you are free to pursue a myriad of marketing methods; such as, industry networking, participation in various writing competitions, and utilizing online marketing websites like www.TVWritersVault.com (a venue that more than 300 entertainment industry executive and companies use to source new projects). A current list of the best screenwriting competitions for 2018 is provided by The Script Lab https://thescriptlab.com/blogs/7937-top-screenwriting-competitions-2018-calendar-dates-deadlines/ In addition, we present a few competitions that are part of our current support and sponsorship:

SUCCEED – Your own creative process incorporates your developed talents, supplemented by learned methods, and driven by a persistent effort to succeed. Success comes in many forms; the satisfaction gained by simply completing your screenplay or manuscript; the recognition received from achieving writing competition awards and the exposure that provides; the receipt of an “Option Deal” for your creative project; or the attainment of your project being sold and produced into a film, book/novel, tv game show or music recording. It doesn’t matter whether your ideas are simple or complex, success is possible!
If you never give up, continue to learn how to be creative, and keep a positive perspective – good things will come your way.
