Price A Dream A writer's career generally starts from a dream, a fantasy, a goal that seems far beyond the horizon. "I want to be a novelist." "I want to publish a book of poetry." "I want my name plastered on the screen as writer of the film." My career also started with a dream. I want to make people laugh. I wanted to write comedy. But every writer should also be aware, that there is a price to pay for any purpose to be achieved. Entrance into a dream nothing is free. There is research to be done, must learn, practice, practice, and practice. The cheapest and usually the quickest, way to achieve all it wants is to pay the full price. Perform all work in earnest! When I decided to become a comedy writer, I want to learn from a professional. Bob Hope, I think, have ingredients that are useful and most can be learned for the purpose of analysis. Ingredients funny comedy in the papers and pure humor. Of course, Bob Hope is an expert in bringing the jokes that was delivered directly, but there was still humor that can be read and studied. Other comics, like Jerry Lewis was funny, but rather the antics to create a festive atmosphere. In the book, the materials were not so beneficial for students, compared to books such as Bob Hope comedy. So I studied the Bob Hope comedy. I record his monologue on television shows and copy words. I have to analyze the forms of jokes, wording, rhythm, setting a joke in the stream, and others. Then, for a while I put aside his monologue. Within a few weeks, I have chosen a new topic of the paper and try to write a humor by using the techniques I learned from Bob Hope's latest monologue. Using this technique, Bob Hope and his writers became my mentor. And it turned out that way to fruition. I managed to be a comic writer in the local newspaper, then went on to become a staff career in show on television distraction. Even eventually be even more successful. Bob Hope contacted me. "I've heard about your writing and think if you would mind making a few storylines to my show at the Academy Awards. This year I became the host. I wonder if you made humor can help me. " This is part of the dream that I dare not imagine. But here nothing is impossible. I opened the book and holding a pen in the backyard, writing several hundred jokes about the current state of cinema, celebrities, and everything associated with the Oscars. Naturally, I use a method which I learned many years of Bob Hope-style jokes. Bob Hope uses ten of humor that I gave on television casting and it makes me very proud. The next day he called me again and said, "I love your writings. It seems you have been writing comedy material for me throughout my life." "Yes sir Hope," I said. "Only the father did not know." Subsequently I became a writer for Bob Hope remains. ***** There are two valuable lessons from this experience, that all writers can learn and gain inspiration from: First the attempt to do, so that every dream can come true. Dreams are a source of strength, only if the dream was realized in research, teaching and businesses that do not know surrender. The second thing is: do everything that needs to be done - and your goal will be achieved. (By Gene Perret) BONUS: You can Achieve anything you want in life if you have the courage to dream it, the intelligence to Make a realistic plan, and the Will to see That plan through to the end.
