• September 2016

    It has been some time since I have posted anything here. My time has been consumed by a writing course, holidays and the London Screenwriters’ Festival.

    The writing course began last April and almost each day we have had exercises or critiques to prepare.

    So if you are away for a day or so, there is much catching up to do. Having said that this is one of the best courses I have done, and I have done a lot. I have learnt more about different writing techniques on this course than any other. As with anything, a course is a personal choice and because it has worked for me, it doesn’t mean that it will work for you. In case your curiosity has been peaked I am currently on the Pro Series course run by Hal Croasman from ScreenwritingU. www.screenwritingu.com If you are a beginner you would be better trying a shorter course. If you have been writing for some time and want to improve, I would recommend the Pro Series. Incidentally, I won’t get anything if you choose to do this course, I am just recommending it.

    The London Screenwriters’ Festival 2016. Even better than before. I admire Chris Jones so much. Without his vision, enthusiasm and energy this would not be the event that it is. A big thank you to the many volunteers who are always there with a smile. This year there were writers from Australia, South Africa, Europe and a few from the States, as well as Britain, of course. Each year I wrench myself away from my comfort zone and take myself up to London. Each year I have sleepless nights worrying about the PitchFest, but I do it anyway because it is good to practice pitching.

    This year was my best year ever. Perhaps I have improved? Perhaps I was pitching a better concept? Now I have to get those 1 pagers just right and follow up.

    I love writing!
