Hello everyone!

I finally got the courage to write my first post. I'm here specially to learn and hopefully make friends.

I'm going to share a little of my life with you because this few years haven't been easy for me, and now that I'm in love again I feel a new man. I'm a very emotional and passionate person so when I was 15 years old I got very much in love for an older woman who I met online and I literally left everything for her: Friends and school. In the beginning it's always beautiful but it got very complicated as time went by. She was mentally and physically sick, and I only visited her at the hospital mainly because I was a minor and she was 25 years older than me. Our relationship was very secretive, only a few nurses caught us kissing. Everything changed when she tried to kill herself. I was angry and upset that she could leave me just like that. But the first time I saw her after that i just hugged her. From that point everything was going down and a few months later when she was getting better I finally decided to stop seeing her. Well, I didn't mention she had a husband and a lot of things that made my life miserable because this text would be way longer.

Anyway, I want to share this story because I fell in love again after 2 years on drugs and staying home pretty much in depression. I still feel I'm recovering from all of that but everything is going much better now. I fell in love for a girl named Sarah and I intend to move to England because I want to be close to her. Yes, we are on a long distance relationship and for almost 2 months.

I want to make an undergraduate course of film making on her college this year. So I'm a beginner in the subject but I'm a very curious guy who wants to know everything. I know that's not possible but I'll do my best.

I'm sharing all this because I want to change and be the person I used to be, an happier one, for Sarah. She's my truly inspiration.

I love to write although I haven't written any script yet. I'm reading Syd Field at the moment and learning a lot in forums, sites, and on Quora.

Hope to get to know all of you.

@Andre

Welcome to SS, glad to have you.  It also takes a lot of courage to share part of your life's story.  And from what I've read,  moving forward, your forecast looks good.  Stay strong.

The most important thing is to be a seeker, not a parrot.  A seeker is looking for all kinds of information so that they can make up their own mind.   A parrot just wants someone to tell them what to do.  Every screenwriter finds their own way, and I'm sure you'll find yours.

Again, welcome.

Welcome Andre.

Wow, that's some story. Good to hear you're building a new life for yourself and now have a plan and aspirations for your future. Well done dusting yourself off and getting back up like you have.

SS is a great place, best of its ilk imh.
I hope you get a lot out of it.

Sounds like some freaky shit, mate. Also sounds like you have a lot of growing up to do... good luck with that.

You are aware that this is a site for writers? There isn't anything about writing in your post.

Sounds like a film, Andre. Although I'm not sure I'd enjoy watching it. Still, it'd have to better than some I've seen.

Not sure Syd Field is the best place to start. It might help you churn out a bog standard movie, but nothing special. Still, read what you can. As usual I'll recommend Denny Flynn's 'How Not To Write A Screenplay', by far the best book I've read on script writing. Good luck with it all.

Welcome.

You've lived one hell of a crazy life so far, hope it settles down for you, on a good way. I'd second reading "How Not To Write A Screenplay" if anything. I found it pretty helpful. Also, read plenty of scripts and participate as much as you can on here.

Good luck.

Thank you a lot for all of your words! I appreciate the recommendations and I'll definitely check the book out. I know it's a little off topic what I wrote but I guess that's an effect of loneliness.
I'll be more active on the forum and more on topic. Again, thank you for the hospitality!
