Around me, friends are setting up companies, beginning to make their way into the industry, and starting the journey to make a name for themselves. Having now decided that I want to be a writer, I thought it was time to make that known.
Welcome to my creative diary!
Recently I came back from Universal in London, and one of the tips I received from the publicity and business team there was that if I wanted to be a writer, having a blog was a good way to let people know who I am, and what I do. So here we are.
Right now, I’m in the midst of finishing my first ever feature screenplay! Once I’m happy with that, I’ll return to the first draft of my first novel as well, and begin working through it chapter by chapter. If you’re interested to see what those projects are about, you can click over to them by using the menu! I have poured so much of myself into these projects, it would mean the world to know your thoughts, whether it’s critical feedback, or general compliment. Both are welcome!
This year has certainly been a big one for me. I’ve made important life decisions, finished novel and script drafts, come up with new ideas, and finished my second year of university!
In the coming year, I hope to make headway with my script, and enter it into competitions. By the end of December, I hope to have the second draft of my novel done. I’ll have started my dissertation, and begun my next screenplay. The latter two ideas are still fledglings, and I’ve still so much to learn before their trajectory is decided. But with this blog, in the coming months, we shall see what paths they take!
I hope with this first blog that I’ve caught peoples interest. Perhaps it’ll be a while before I’ve got enough content to attract people, or maybe the two projects I’ve introduced are enough for people to come and read what I write. Either way, I’ll be here, updating at least once a week on this blog or one of the projects.
