Quinten Sansosti ’20: “Overcoming the Fear of Starting”

Published By Duke Arts / published on: May 4, 2020

Quinten Sansosti, '20, shares his thesis project, a feature film screenplay titled "Extra Innings," as well as advice for other artists during this time.

Part of our “Art and Artists are Essential” collection and invitation.

“The hardest part of writing is overcoming the fear of starting. If you’re not doubting yourself, then you’re probably not doing anything that’s very interesting. So if you haven’t started writing your next project because you’re afraid of expression, rejection, or failure…good. That means you’re only one step away from creating something special.” — Quinten Sansosti, Class of 2020, Political Science Major, Certificate in Arts of the Moving Image
