I don't normally need to make a fuss when I go away for a while, as I usually post so infrequently that it can go unnoticed. But, having made an effort to up my game of late, it is probably necessary to tell you all that I am off on holiday for a week with the family, so there won't be any posts for a while.
I have left the blog's downstairs light on, so people will think I'm in (and staying up all night every night, without moving from one spot). If you come by to water the blog's plants, and spot that the freebie newspaper is hanging half-out of my blog's letter box, please do me a favour and knock it all the way through, or else blog thieves may notice, break in, and make off with all my best posts.
Anyway, I'm looking forward to the break, as work's been pretty full on recently. My Red Planet entry is finished, sealed and sent. I'm keeping everything crossed - I'm pretty pleased with it, and to be honest, just producing the material is enough of a win for me (not that I'll be knocking Tony back if he wants to invite me to the next round, of course).
Also, once I get back, as well as lot of other ideas that are nagging away at my mind wanting to be written, there's another round of digital shorts to think about. The scheme is opening for submissions in all the screen agencies across the regions, and I'm thinking about putting in a longer script this year. While I'm away, if you're also thinking of entering, my posts on the scheme and my experiences with it are as linked below, and may be useful:
Have a great week: see you soon!
