Collider's in the Finals!
Well, that is very exciting!
After the informative feedback from Valery Hoskins Agency about Collider, I was positive that it wouldn't make it very far, and each round I've been surprised and delighted! Of course I had the quandary with my edited version - the first copy was good enough to get to the Finals, should I stick with it? It's pretty good... but I went with my gut, which says that the edits I've made make for a better script.
I also got my Raindance feedback and incorporated that, so I'm hoping it's a tidy little script with a good chance!
Now I need to put it out of my mind for a month, with the winners announced October 15th.....
I've booked myself on a writing seminar series with Josh Golding later this month, running alternate Saturdays with a group of aspiring writers. Fools Walk is the topic I shall expand on there. It's been in my head a couple of years now, with brief revisits, but I'm aiming to submit that to the Beeb when it's done. Sequestration Manor is really tugging at me too, the characters are forming up nicely in my head, and their pitfalls are getting deadlier every day, plus of course poor Bing and Moo are getting very impatient to get out. I think they'll be last because they're a slow burner.
All in all, life feels very positive! Aside from a minor cock-up in my day job (unrelated to me, but impacting on my invoice!), things are progressing. I just need to win the Page Awards to afford even more time away from the drudgery - and then, of course, sell a script so I never have to work in computers again!
