Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.
Don't be afraid to give your best to what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.
Your purpose is to make your audience see what you saw, hear what you heard, feel what you felt. Relevant detail, couched in concrete, colorful language, is the best way to recreate the incident as it happened and to picture it for the audience.
There is only one way... to get anybody to do anything. And that is by making the other person want to do it.
