Lists


I wonder what is the point of this endless list making? The list in itself is endless, there are always things to do, large or small, what would happen if I existed in a list free world fora week? perhaps I should give them up for Lent. I currently have 10 lists on the go, three writing related, five home related, one leisure related and one shopping. I'll try to forget about them all tonight and go climbing, but can I remember which way to tie the knots without a list of how to do it?

Met an author in Waterstones this morning, had published his own book, I thought he meant publish on demand, but he had actually printed it himself, started to write it when his children were young, he's now a grandfather, oh this process takes forever!!

MA or not MA?


So now I'm applying for MA places, but the application process is akin to writing a novel, 5,0000 words of original fiction for one, a 2,000 word essay for another, have to put the SWD screenplay on the back burner for a short time, and find more time to write. Will I be the oldest student on campus? Who else has done a creative writing MA recently? Let me know:)

She Who Dares- the Movie


Coming soon - She Who Dares - the movie - a heist story of friendship, desperation and Karabinas, set in the lost lands of South Wales. Have thought of it before, but didn't have the story hook - thanks Stu, now I do! I'm writing the outline to enter for a Euroscript competition, but may well go ahead and write the screenplay anyway.
