STORYTELLERS, IT'S TIME...

To step into your power, embrace your unique voice, and create authentic stories.

The world is waiting for you!

“A culture cannot evolve without honest, powerful storytelling.”
- Robert McKee

As you wait in line for your daily latte at the neighborhood coffee joint, an idea creeps in...

...hitching a ride on the back of other mindless thoughts and forcing its way into the forefront of your vision --

The character that needs a voice, the story that is dying to be told, that one vivid scene that you just can’t shake.

It’s an idea that has been pestering you like a younger sibling vying for attention. But you brush it off...again.

The creative muse strikes at all hours and at the most inconvenient times.

If this awesome idea is swooping in, then it’s because it wants to come through you, in your authentic voice.

Those thoughts are dying to be released and transformed into a clear, concise and powerful story that will dazzle any executive or publisher.

So what's stopping you?

  • Are your writing talents not being recognized by the all-powerful agents, producers, and publishers who could bolster your career?
  • Do you feel like you lack the technical or structural knowledge? 
  • Are you tired of watching other writers succeed while you flatline under the weight of the creative process?
  • Do you slam into writer’s block like a crash test dummy? 
  • Does the thought of entering a ghost pepper eating contest have more appeal than having your work reviewed? 

You are not alone.


Storytelling is not for the faint of heart.

It can be a brutal journey. 

I’m here to help!

I WANT TO DISCOVER MY STORY

KELLI BRESLIN
Writer/Producer on Netflix’s YOU

"I literally knew nothing about screenwriting before I met Sandy. I had a passion for story-telling and a gluttonous desire to learn, but I never thought it would go anywhere for me. Sandy has a gift in seeing the story you’re trying to write and giving you the key tools you need to see it for yourself. She was the only person I sought notes from when applying to the Warner Bros TV Writers Program and because of her incredible insight, I got in! She’s the only person I’ve ever encountered who doesn’t give notes to feed her own ego, she gives them to ignite the project. You and your masterpiece are in the best hands with Sandy Comstock!”

“Ideas are like fish. If you want to catch little fish, you can stay in the shallow water. But if you want to catch the big fish, you’ve got to go deeper.”
- David Lynch

It’s not that your story isn’t good, it’s that something is missing...


The pacing is off, the characters aren’t connecting, the drama fizzles like a campfire doused in water.

Nobody cares.

When the fire is out, no one stays to watch the lifeless coals. 

In this burgeoning age of digital streaming platforms and online self-publishing options, the markets are being flooded with content.

EVERYONE is dying to write their memoir or create the next Game of Thrones. The odds of success are not in your favor. And when you go in to pitch your script you've already lost the game before you've even started and you don't know why.

That, my friends, is the cold, hard truth.

The creative journey is one of metamorphosis for both the story and the writer.

If the cards are undoubtedly stacked against you, then how can you increase the possibility of selling your pilot, nabbing a producer for your film, or hooking a bonafide publisher for your book trilogy?

Well…

Storytelling is personal.

It’s raw truth and vulnerability.

It is the brilliant synergetic balance of truth (heart) and technicality (bones).  As you set the structure and dive into the story, you are simultaneously exploring a new depth in yourself. 

To create a gripping narrative arc that reader’s won’t be able to tear away from, you’re required to go DEEP into the human experience, excavate the layers of complex emotion, and honestly portray what you discover. 

Terrifying, right?

Like I said, storytelling is not for the faint of heart.

YOU HAVE TO STAND OUT.

The market is saturated.

To rise above and set yourself apart from the masses, your story needs to be more...

...more captivating, more compelling, more magical, more relevant, more unforgettable.

It needs to be the cream in an enormous vat of mediocre milk.

It needs to be marketable.

This is where I come in. I'm the ultimate insider.

Today, I work on international, big-budget marketing campaigns at Warner Bros. for films like Fantastic Beasts, Wonder Woman, and Lego Movie 2.

I know what makes a successful film and what makes a flop.

Prior to that, I was a dedicated writer, dutifully putting my Screenwriting degree to use.

As a writer, I have been where you are. I have stifled my creative flow, battled writer's block, second guessed myself, and toiled endlessly over the same scene. It was shitty and soul-crushing.

I discovered yoga, which turned out to be my gateway drug to meditation, and that was only a pit stop before finding myself on an intense spiritual path. Through it all, I acquired tangible tools and resources that helped tear down the barriers around my creative process.

Tips and tricks that I'm dying to share.

The world always seems brighter when you've just made something that wasn't there before.”

- Neil Gaiman

MEET THE WRITERS

KIM LUPE
Comedian / Writer

"I have known Sandy for many years and have always been a big fan of her writing.  When I decided to write a pilot, it was completely new territory for me as I had never considered myself a writer. I've always simply been a comedian that writes jokes.  Enter Sandy – words can’t express what a gift she has for pulling your story out and making your words pop.  She provided feedback on drafts, supported my vision, and really helped foster my creativity.  I had thought my finished version was good but after Sandy worked me through the final cleanup, it was amazing!  It read better in so many ways and pulled out all the key lines of dialogue that I had trouble making hit.  Since working with her on that first pilot, I have since written a complete web series with my writing partner and even filmed the pilot.  I'm now moving onto my next project and I immediately reached out to Sandy, because I know the quality of work that I will produce with her guidance. I can’t wait to work with her again."

STEVE FRECH
Best-Selling Author of "Dark Hallows" / Harper Collins

"I wanted my second novel, 'Nightingale House', to be more than a standard 'haunted house' story, and Sandy's insight helped me establish the theme of 'grief' as its own haunting, adding an indispensable layer to my characters and plot. It wouldn't be the same book without her."
