Second Time Around

The scriptwriting course that was cancelled last year started again today - with two more students, but none of the other three that were on it last year. We need eight, we’ve only got six - if anyone is around Maidstone between 1pm and 3pm on a Tuesday afternoon, come on down!

So now I have homework from a course that may not continue, grr! Anyone seen Taxi Driver? Wow, what a show of hands - I know, I should be ashamed of myself - it’s on my must-see list now. I watched the first five minutes today and have to write the first page of the script myself! And also read a play before next week AND write a short piece about conflict during a meal - at least I won’t struggle with the subject matter on that one! Tutor Sharon didn’t say it couldn’t be a meal involving chocolate …I’m thinking, lots of gateau, pan across to the Ripple stock - OI YOU! - Step away from the chocolate, it’s mine, kind of thing. I had to leave dead on 3pm for the school run, Marilyn just emailed to say the theme for the short piece is the Seven Deadly Sins -'Greed' anyone?

Love both blogs! And I agree with you about Anton and Gillian - NO WAY should they have gone! (I love Anton!)

Thanks for visiting my blog. I'm sorry to say that I probably won't be returning to the scriptwriting course - but I wish you well with your writing in the future. It's a tough job but someone's gotta do it! Denise

I wouldn't be surprised to see Anton end up presenting it!

I'm sorry you won't be going back -but it does look as though it will get cancelled again doesn't it. Good luck with your book, I'll visit to see how you're getting on :)
