Almost There...

Just about finished the 3rd Draft of Retribution. Tweeking and polishing all over the place. I’m not going to look at it today – will do one final check on it tomorrow – then hopefully that will be it!

Got several more projects all lined up in a nice and orderly way!

Have pulled one out (this one is for a short film) and have made a nice, shiney new file for it. I’m currently scribbling out the outline for it even as we speak!

Tuesday News!

Yesterday, I was feeling a bit rubbish – not very confident etc. “I can’t write, I’m rubbish etc etch Blah Blah” as everyone does…*grin*

However, last month I entered my 2nd writing contest (for once, NOT being put off by not getting anywhere on the first time!)

WordHustler ran a competition in March for in which you had to write an essay about ‘Why I Write,’ so I had a bash at it.

This morning I got an email saying I had received an Honourable Mention. At first I just thought – ‘Ah well,’ that’s probably a mass email sent out to everyone who entered. When I actually re-read it – I found out that there are 3 winners and only SIX Honourable Mentions!

I am CHUFFED to bits to say the least!

Saturday, 4 April 2009


I decided this morning that I really did need to have a solid outline for one of my main projects – so – with a wave of my fairy wand – ’tis done! I’ve just finished it and I’m pretty happy with it. It’s already solved a couple of problems.!

Can’t wait to just get on with the writing now!!! Brilliant

Ticking Along

Things are ticking along nicely. Working away at several projects and I’m generally having a blast! Even if nothing ever comes out of any of it – it’ll still be worth it!

Oh! Must tell you. Weird dream the other night! I guess it was my first ’script related’ dream - I had taken one of my scripts along to the BBC (as you do!) and everyone was very nice and busy and they seemed very keen that I was there. They let me watch the filming of some police drama thingie (?) Next thing, the lady in charge who had shown me around earlier was holding all these pink pages and crying saying she just couldn’t do the script. (Maybe this is me telling myself it’s a bit rubbish! ) Anyway I was trying to convince her to go ahead and was worried about what two of the main characters would think and how upset they’d be. Next thing – there they are. Just watching in the background. Then I think everyone turned into Tellytubbies or something.

I think I may need help…
