Nice to meet you and welcome to my first post here.
Some of you may know me from my old blog here. I am going to keep that about but from now on I will be posting here.
So what will you see in my little missives?
I like to chat about my writing, of course, events I have been to, any interesting gossip (writing based only you naughty boys and girls) and odd events in my life. Just to spice things up a bit. A lot of odd things happen to me. Comes from living in a small village and being mostly housebound. I have to keep myself amused somehow.
Things to look forward to in the posts ahead:
1) London Screenwriting Festival (LSF)! If you have not heard about this where have you BEEN! It is the place to be as a screenwriter. A long weekend surrounded by kindred spirits. Learning, networking and having a good time. I will be posting about my preparations, why I go and what is happening this year.
2) Create50. Again as a writer you need to know about this. It is project that has ties to LSF. The project makes films, books and there is more planned ahead. I will talk about why I got involved, what happened and why you should to. Note this one has opportunities for film makers, illustrators and musicians as well as writers.
3) Mentors. Who I turn to for advice. Why having someone other than family reading your work is a good thing. How I cope with feedback. Where you can find useful information and why you should be on Facebook. Yes really. It is not just for sharing photos of your meals. It is a working environment too.
4) Writing Groups. I have had bad experiences. I have had good. Overall they are worth while. I am a member of North Cumbria Scriptwriters (NCS) which is affiliated with Theatre by the Lake (TBTL).
So hope you pop by and have a good read.
Welcome to my thoughts. If my work makes you feel something I'll be happy.
