Um, yeah

I seem to be finding myself oddly without much to say at the moment. The Guardian Online, usually a source of some sort of response from my grey matter, is just dull and boring at the moment, with idiotic writing about fluff like how to cope with email. I can answer that problem in one go: don't answer the damn stuff! Works for me every time.

I wrote the closing scenes of my screenplay last night. One character dies. I cried. I've never done that before. It was a strange experience. I knew this guy had to die days ago, it's inevitable considering his life and the way that he develops through the film, but I was still a bit upset when he finally expired, lying injured at the top of a Welsh mountain, having made a noble sacrifice that results almost directly in his death. I suppose that if it gets me like that, hopefully it will get the reader too.

Course, now I have to figure out how to get said character from Reading to the top of a Welsh mountain. Should be fun.

If you want professional feedback on your script there's no better place than the Script Factory ( excuse their crappy website!). Real nice people who know their shit about scripts. If you were living in Wales, I could get the same service for you for ?15! But hey, can't have popeth eh Suw!

Hey Nwdls, thanks for the tip. I've taken a look at their site, and the coverage report looks like a good service. Can you cut me a deal if I relocate temporarily to Trefor? 😉
