I am finding coding a natural accompaniment to writing for me lately. It's good to have something 'doable' to focus on when either the "blue mist of writer's block" or the "brown mist of writing bad" descend over my day.
I don't think I'm going to meet my goal of entering competitions this year sadly. Too much has been happening to get around to that sort of writing. I shall aim for next year instead!
That said, the London Screenwriter's Festival website has informed me that I have a whole 149 days to get ready to pitch, and presumably there will be a competition this year that I hope to enter (though lord knows how they are planning to outdo the 50 Kisses competition of last year!!) - assuming I can get myself organised in time!
I'm also hanging out for 2013 Guerilla Filmmakers Masterclass, which I'm sure will be another incredible weekend this year, although this time in June.
On the subject of filmmaking, I've sprinkled many and various filmmaking books liberally around the house in the hope that these seeds will grow my family into budding filmmakers. * The Guerilla Filmmakers Handbook also comes in a handy pocket size which is great for leaving in the bathroom - there is no escaping the indoctrination in this house!! 😉
Back to coding for now …
ps. if any London-based WordPress coders happen to read this, London Screenwriter's Festival are hiring! Scoot on over there and take a look
