Blimey, it’s been a while since I blagged, but nobody wants to know I’m chilling by the sea, drinking wine and reflecting on my writing. Especially not in rainy old England, that’s called gloating.
After my lovely hols, it’s all go. InkTip are including me in a newsletter so I think it’s okay to tout my connection with Great American Cinema . Scott Rudolph has a fabulous idea, and for the last few months we’ve been bashing it around into the skeleton of a story. After we’ve ironed out the twists and turns, the script gets started.
I’ve also started with the brilliant Script Angel mentoring with Hayley McKenzie. For the first time ever, I have someone looking at my writing objectively and giving me tips and tasks for progression – aiming of course for the all-important London Screenwriting Festival. My biggest hurdle - I have decided to make myself pitch! Hayley is helping me prepare my pitches, while I've enrolled on the 2Phils pitching workshop the weekend before LSF.
COLLIDER is now optioned by Buggar of a Kid Films AND Hayley thinks some of my very early work shows merit. Pretty soon, I'll have a slate of scripts in various genres and a not-too-shoddy writing portfolio! All exciting and all going in the right direction
