We are joined today by the exceptionally talented writer, producer, and co-creator of the new Netflix show I Am Not Okay with This, Christy Hall. She is here to talk about the beautifully weird Ron Howard/ George Lucas fantasy epic, Willow. This episode’s conversation is particularly illuminating and helpful as Christy gets into the nitty-gritty of being a writer. She elaborates on her initial struggle, and inevitable embrace, of using outlines when crafting a script. She also discusses the need to hone your craft and put in the work in order to get to the desired place in your career. Young writers, this is the podcast episode for you!

You can watch I Am Not Okay with This right this very minute on Netflix!

And if you haven’t seen Willow…it’s good!
