How do Writers Access the Locked Doors?

I watched a documentary of a musician who writes their own songs with the help of an experienced songwriter. On this documentary, the songwriter said after working with the singer for awhile, she had to move on and work with someone else because the singer wasn’t willing to access the deeper emotions that were locked away inside.



I got to thinking about this in regards to my script writing. I have been told by multiple people that my characters lack depth. I’ve been really trying to figure out for a couple of months why. I believe the above is my answer. I develop characters based on my life. I have a problem showing the true me and it’s  because of fear.


Fear once again has held me back from telling my truth. Fear of causing pain to others, fear of disappointing those around me, and fear of being exposed as the person that lies inside me that i don’t like at all. It’s just really difficult to show the person you don’t even like. So I guess I I have choice, I can fight through the fear and write with depth, not write at all, or continue being a wanna be writer.
