One thing I do believe (and am now experiencing myself) is in our desire to get to the finish line we might start underwriting.
It's natural. It's exciting. You're going to have a finished screenplay/novel/pilot. Yay! But man, you're fucking tired. It's been a long haul. Can't you just work a little less hard now?
Consistency IS the key. With consistency, you can get your work done without underwriting any one section. For me, oddly, it's the end. I see the finish line and I'm like We're done! I don't have to care as much anymore!
Every single part of your work has to be valued. You need to stand behind all of it. So don't rush.
Slow and steady wins the race. Unless you're in a marathon but let's be honest, you're not. You hate exercise.
