It’s the beginning of the third act
we are stirring from the long
Dark Night of the Soul ®

Where it appears that good cannot win
ever again
and that we will forget what good even is
as we struggle against evil
against injustice
against apathy
and those who just give up because it’s too hard

We forget
giving up is a privilege.
Not all have the luxury of taking their bat and ball
and heading home where it is safe
Most do not
and their lives are lived
in the third act

Cannot escape it
Cannot go over it
Must go through it

Advice from the most unlikely place – a screenwriting text
Gather the team
Dig Deep Down
Execute the plan
Don’t hope for the best
make it happen
and refuse hopelessness.
