OK a naff title. But it gives me the chance to use my favourite insult. Naff. It's an age thing.
So I got my head down and did some serious writing. OK re-writing. OK in a couple of cases rip into tiny pieces and stitch together again. Lucy made sure I used the machette judiciously.
Today I'll be sending out shorts to BSSC, Supershorts and Page. Then on to longer stuff.
I've a sitcom that has sat there for 18months. Time to dig it out and give it a critical read. I suspect I will keep the underlying idea and the plan for each episode but bin the rest. If you hear any piteous screeches it will be me, horrified by on the nose dialogue, direction to actors, and a multitude of other crimes I committed back then.
Hopefully it will be redeamable enough for the BBC Comedy College. I'm not sure if I have time to write something from scratch.
I hope to also get an idea in for C4 Coming Up. But only if an idea grabs me.
All this means I need to keep writing hard. Hence I've been a bit quiet on the blogging front and expect it will be a weekly entry next week too. I am reading you all though. After all I need a sanity check.
Oh and Robin did a link to this for a checklist on how to keep that writing going.
Keep your pencils sharp.
