After winning first place in PAGE sci-fi round, and the flurry of requests to see my script COLLIDER - and other scripts, it feels a bit flat - this period of waiting. I guess it's an early dance of show me what you have, and I'll show you mine.
It is lovely having Prod Co's, literary and managing agents (still got to get my head around what that means?) actually contacting me, rather than the other way around. Still, after writing for so many years, there's a huge part of me that's not ... not jaded, that's the wrong adjective! Just... realistic? Stoic? It all takes so very long!
I would love someone to buy Collider, wouldn't that be amazing? I do like the script, and I can imagine it on the Big Screen, but will it happen as a result of this competition? I'm not sure.
I was also convinced it wouldn't win though! I think I'm probably gearing myself up rationally, for another steep climb before selling something - although emotionally I am, in truth, mentally composing my response to IT-World, with an out of office:
"Thank you for getting in touch. I am unavailable for IT work for the next 'X' months, and will be in touch if/when I've run out of income from writing."
