Pondering and Thinking...

… but not actually DOING much. I’m still reading ‘A Writer’s Tale’ (yes – I’m a slow reader!) and thoroughly enjoying it.

I’ve started 3 scripts with a fourth hovering on the backburner. I’ve been toying with combining two of them into one of the other scripts… but I think I’ll keep them seperate… maybe. Gahh! Indecision!

Yesterday (or was it the day before – can’t remember) upon visiting Danny Stack’s spiffing blog – it’s got loads of great advice and stuff, I noticed that he is trying to raise funds for the making of a short film. In return, he’s giving away copies of his script, useful info, video diary etc which is just such a brilliant opportunity to see how the whole process works – especially for frightened little newcomers like me! So – go take a look and give him all your dosh!

Apart from updating ‘My Other Blog’ and a casual glance through one of my projects (going to have to start giving them names… well, actually they do have names - but I’m not telling you. So there!) I have achieved remarkably little today…

Jumping In!

I submitted a short story yesterday for a competition…. I think I may have been a bit too hasty though as I think I should have spent a little more time working on it – however, me being of the ‘jump in without thinking’ type, just threw something together and sent it in, knowing full well that I’d have a bucketload of interruptions etc….

Ah well – never mind. Was still fun to do…

Little Steps

I just went online and ordered a copy of this year’s ‘Writers’ & Artists’ Yearbook‘! I’m all excited now! I also bought a book about Script Dialogue – so can’t wait to start reading!

Bit More Progress

Yay! Four pages of new project done :) !

Has to be a good day! It’s flowing a bit better now, but is basically a bit rubbish. But I don’t care :) Not yet anyway :)

MUST MUST MUST do other project thingy – that’s VITAL.

Well it’s not vital in a world shattering way – but it’s the one thing that I’m hoping will actually do something for me…

I’m talking crap aren’t I…?!

New Project

Got an idea the other day for a small drama and began the script today. I’ve also got the gist of Episode 2 of my other small TV project. I’m not sure which one to make Ep1 now…

So – plan is…. work on those two projects and complete them, then… find an agent.

LOL! Yeah – like that’s ever going to happen!
