Rant: High Concept Microbudget Feature Writing

July 8th, 2013

Booze 1I hear it time and time again: it's all about the concept. And that concept is what everyone is chasing.

It seems to me that all anyone wants is high concept. Something new. Yet not too new. In fact, if it could be very, very like a product that already exists, but yet is somehow different in a new and refreshing way, that would be just great. But, and I can't stress this enough, not TOO refreshing or TOO different. So really kind of the same. But different. Better. We don't want the audience to have to think too much and we definitely don't want the film executives to have to think at all. Or take any risks.

Oh and we’re not going to pay you very much. Or even anything.

It's no wonder screenwriters like me are sitting round staring at the keyboard and sweating into our cheap liquor.

It's perhaps why most of my screenwriter friends are still aiming for the big tamale … the impossible shot-in-the-dark of their script getting optioned by someone with a proper budget, with a proper cast, by a proper production company.

Champagne on iceTo my mind I would be better off buying a lottery ticket. I mean the odds are 14,000,000:1, right? That HAS to be a better chance than selling my high concept heartwarming, gangster, animal, rom com script to Hollywood.

It is all too much to consider and too, too depressing. So we sit at our keyboards after doing our day jobs, quietly turning profound messages and interesting characters into what we think are great scripts (even if in the present climate they are totally unmarketable) in the vain hope that one day soon things may change. The market will come out of its slumber, someone somewhere will decide that it’s OK that filmmaking is a risky business and decide to take chances once again. And maybe then the wheels of the industry we love and want to be a part of will begin whirring back into life.  And new movies will start to flow again. Fresh movies, wonderful movies, full of intrigue and adventure and humanity and with really great writing. With titles and taglines that contain none of the following words: “reboot”, “sequel”, “prequel” or “amazing”.

Of course Steven Spielberg thinks the whole movie business is about to implode and we’ll all be stuck watching reality TV, with our boredom only occasionally relieved by trotting off to the nearest big city to see a *movie blockbuster*, like the coach trip I went on once to see “Cats” and “The Phantom of the Opera” on stage. A once in a lifetime sort of thing, perhaps.   (And Steven Spielberg has a yacht. A big one! So I figure he knows something about where the film industry is headed.)

For me and my hopeful, hard-drinking screenwriter compadres, it’s all pretty depressing. Make mine a double!!

More boozeFor me the only glimmer of hope is in independent filmmaking. That is picking up the camera and doing it myself. I have what it takes, except quite probably the talent, but apart from that it all seems sort of doable. I like that.

And with that in mind my scripts are starting to flow again; I can put down the cheap liquor and write to produce, right? Well no, not really. Screenwriting is an already lethal cocktail: concept, marketability, fresh but not too fresh, different but not too different, with really great characters, great male leads and lots of scope for actresses to get their tits out. In indie filmmaking all this still applies, because the movie-going public's taste has been shaped that way, but now we have to add in the vital ingredient of low budget filmmaking into the mix, and suddenly you have a truly terrifying concoction.  Prepare to be feeling the effects of this brew for a long time to come.

To most Joes in the street, low budget simply means no helicopter explosions, no CGI, no big name actors.

To the independent filmmaker low budget means one location, no money for professional actors (so nothing requiring too much emoting), no catering ("well maybe Mum can put on a pan of stew, but no, she's never heard of vegan") and absolutely no budget for makeup, props or hair. “Oh and can you bring your own clothes? Preferably several identical sets. They may get damaged so nothing too good.”

To go to that much effort all on your own credit card limit, auntie’s life savings and the coins you found down the back of the sofa, you need to have a really really good story.  Which is where I came in at the start of this rant, but now rather than selling it to an industry that doesn’t want it, we’re investing our own money and that of our family and friends.

It has to be a story that’s so profound and heart-warming or so horrifyingly scary that it’s going to enthuse every single one of the people you’re going to need to cajole into crowdfunding your project or giving their time and effort for free.

The story is going to have to be so important that you’re going to see it through the long miserable edit stage when all your hard work is in the can and you realise it looks like shit; the even longer harder and more disheartening getting it shown stage where the distributors are going to do their absolute damnedest to get you to give them your movie for free. Zero, zilch, zip, nada.

And the story is going to have to be so ingrained into the very fibre of your soul that you’re going to stick with it right through the stage where your ego demands that you drop this absolute millstone of a movie immediately so you can move on to new projects because this one is really just holding you back from being the truly great filmmaker that you are.

Is your story important enough that when you tell your backers the eventual truth which can’t be avoided, that they still feel like they’ve been part of a worthwhile project?? Because let’s be honest, the sole purpose of making most films is to give *me* a shufty up the ladder a bit, or get *me* some attention as the brilliant screenwriter/director/filmmaker/producer/actor etc that I am. It had absolutely nothing to do with giving anyone a return on the financial investment they made in the film. “Sorry Granny, didn’t I tell you? There’s not actually any money in movies.  Only egos and self interest.”

Does your story have the legs to make it through all that?

I see so many stories that just aren’t going to go the distance.  And the project is going to be doomed from the start.  Just because it’s indie, doesn’t mean it’s enough to just make a movie. It has to be a good movie from the off and that is starting with a really great script, a really valid concept and something worthwhile. It’s worth getting it right!!!

The quality of independent films has to improve and that starts with the script.  And if the guy with the yacht is right, and I happen to think he is, we are running out of time. If the concept of the movie is to survive the coming implosion then the quality of independent films must improve fast. We can’t take our lead from the film industry because, let’s face it, that system is screwed. Independent filmmakers need to show solidarity by refusing to play the distributer’s games and by embracing the new methods of distribution that are available. It’s absolutely vital to do it together as the film community, which I think is a much nicer phrase than film industry.

A community is made up of individuals. And for me that's the fun. I like pootling about and doing it myself. The challenge as always is in stretching me.

Kind of like this guy:

Anyway, rant over. Bottoms up!! 🙂



“Help! My granny is on my Facebook!”

Tips for when Business, Social Media & Family don't mix

Social media changed everything. Our work, our relationships, our families.

Family get-togethers that took place a few times a year are now daily occurrences. Uncle Joe's lurid comments that were once tolerated around the yuletide dinner table aren't so welcome when they crop up in reply to a Facebook comment by your boss.

This is all new stuff for families to deal with, and while some of us are canny, most of us are not. Social media makes it all too easy to air dirty laundry in public, inadvertently let the skeletons out of the family closet or rekindle old feuds with a quip that the commenter thinks is in private.

For those of us who work in social media or who use it as a tool of our work this is all potentially disastrous. Do I really want my carefully crafted PR campaign brought down by Auntie Maud commenting on her longstanding grudge against Cousin Gertrude? No!

But we're all human and short of blocking our family members, what can we do?

I believe that education is the key. We must accept that not everyone understands the nature of the newer communication methods. Here are my thoughts on how to approach this if it is a problem for you:

Have the conversation!

Sit them down and talk about it.

Explain that this is your work. It may seem obvious to you, but if they spent the last fifty years going down a coalmine every morning they may not even realise that social media is part of your work.

Explain that the people you communicate with are your co-workers, bosses, business partners or clients. With luck, they may start to behave differently straightaway.

Explain the medium

They may well be using the web but that doesn't necessarily mean anyone has actually explained it to them.

Many older folks also do not understand that when you share something you aren't necessarily sending it to them. It's not that they're narcissistic or think the world revolves around them, they probably just don't understand the nature of mass communication as you do. My Mom thanks me for sending her photos every time I share one on Facebook. The difference between sharing something and sending it isn't necessarily obvious to the octogenarian when a notification pop-up arrives on their iPad.

Explaining that it's more like publishing something in the newspaper than sending a letter or having a phone call will help to reduce the potential for awkward commentary.

This is particularly important with older relatives.

To many older folks writing a series of Facebook comments really is the modern equivalent of having a phone call. Explain that it isn't. Facebook comments can be widely seen, easily shared, and are potentially actionable, both in civil and criminal law.

Inappropriate Comments

Explain to Uncle Jim that while he thinks he's being funny imitating Alf Garnet, those types of comments will offend, and that if the worst came to the worst, Uncle Jim could find himself in prison for making them.

It's entirely possible that Jim doesn't know this. Possibly because he can get away with making those comments at Thanksgiving dinner and no one ever spoke up. That doesn't mean he can say them publicly.  Times have changed and he may not have got the memo. (And you may want to reflect on the pitfalls of holding your tongue before your next family gathering!)

Criticizing Others

People talk about others behind their backs. It happens. But what if they do it on social media?

Often the response is "but so-and-so can't see your Facebook". This is where you have to explain that privacy is not guaranteed. What if a friend of so-and-so sees it? Comments are easily shared and screenshotted. Privacy settings can fail. Companies such as Facebook can have faults that show things that we think are hidden.

And the last thing you want to feel about your timeline is that it's been turned into a minefield of potential problems caused by other people if you change your privacy settings.

Another thing to consider is whether you want to allow your peers seeing your relatives having a spat on Facebook. Will that change how people view you for not handling it better?

If you find you're spending all your time being a cop on your own Facebook page just because some folks can't behave, then maybe it's time to take action. Especially if the miscreants are your family. Your work, your time and your image are important!

Remember the phrase:

"My Facebook. My Rules."

Sending an email is not the same as sending a letter.

Explain to granny that emails are not like sending a letter.

We take great care writing out the address on an envelope, but an email can easily end up with the wrong person. It may get sent to multiple recipients, be forward or intercepted by strangers.

She may send an email in the heat of the moment or say things that she wouldn't write on paper. If she understands that actually she always accidentally CCs you in the emails where she's slagging you off to your sister, maybe she will take more care next time.

Give them a chance to change

Once you've had the chat, give them some time. Granddad gets a trial period after the conversation. Watch carefully and be ready to hit the delete key. If they don't improve then blocking is the best answer.

Remember, you're not blocking a family member; you're blocking their account from accessing yours. You don't let them access your bank account, so how is this any different? There is no reason this should have any impact on your relationship. After all you don't take your great aunt to work with you, so why should she be included in your social media campaigns and business relationships?

If you have the conversation is a gentle open way then hopefully they will feel comfortable to use social media and you will be spared the discomfort of them sharing your baby pictures with the new client you thought you'd just bagged.

Criticizing You

Another key area to consider is criticism of you. What if the comments are from a relative or friend who criticizes you?  Other people may not notice the comments, or just write them off (after all pretty much all of us have one relative like that!) but those comments will go straight to your heart and slowly but surely zap your confidence.

It's easy to take those little jibes day in and day out, but what do they do to your self-esteem?? You can work on yourself to reduce the affect the comments have, but by the nature of who they are our families have the ability to wound us, and wound deeply.

Consider blocking that person's account as a serious option.

Again it doesn't have to affect your relationship, you're just choosing to give them less surface area to rub up against you on. Explain that this can even be better for your relationship. You will have more to talk about next time you see them because they won't know all your news already, and your interaction will be much fresher.

Let's face it, it's pretty disappointing when you tell your great-granny you are getting married and she says "I know. I read it on your Facebook."


I welcome your feedback so please reply. Or you can drop me an email or via Twitter.


Are we collaborating or loafing?

June 19th, 2013

An interesting article relevant to collaboration on projects from Lifehacker yesterday prompted an interesting discussion as a result. We are told that we should collaborate … on films, scripts, game development, crowdfunding projects, open source coding.

Collaborate is the continual mantra!

But it’s important to bear in mind that our projects mean the most to us. Others just aren’t as invested as we are. They can let us down.

This is perhaps due to the phenomenon of “Social Loafing” – a tendency that has been demonstrated when individuals pull on a rope less strongly when they believe others are pulling with them. If you’re talking about a project that you want to share the load on it’s important to remember that sharing the project means everyone pulls significantly less than when working alone. This includes you!

And it's perfectly normal and something we realistically have to expect.

I think the moral of the story is that we should be sure we need to collaborate before we do. Could you perhaps be learning the skills required to do a task that you are about to ask someone else to do for you? At least then you would know how to do it yourself next time.

Food for thought?

My Hero’s Journey to #GFilm

June 18th, 2013

DSCF0939I got asked a few times at the Guerilla Filmmakers Masterclass why I attend the class every year. And I can see why new delegates might ask this - surely you do it once and then “zoom!” you're off making films.

That viewpoint makes sense - it's a class so why would you want or need to take it again?

My answer is this and it takes you on a little bit of my journey since beginning:

The decision to make films for me represented a massive shift in direction. It was also, through my family's eyes, completely left-field. Chris advocates taking massive action - which is great and some people can plow through and take all the necessary steps to make a stage 3 film in one long process.

Where are you starting from?  My story…

Massive action is an honest process. You have to be honest about where you are, what you have and what you're capable of. When I first made the decision in 2009 I wasn't ready to do it. It was just an empty dream. I hadn't turned it into either credible goals or manageable steps to achieve it.

In so many ways.

I started by signing up for a masters degree in Screenwriting at Bournemouth University. But no way was I ready to do that. In fact in 2009 I even found it hard to sit in the classroom with 20 strangers for the entire first day. It was too uncomfortably far outside my ordinary world. I was used to working in my office with Adrian. The only other people I would see in a day were my children, who were home educated. We lived in a bubble. Freelancing allows you to do that. It's a trap and I didn't realize how much of a trap it was until I tried to step outside the bubble.

I ended up deferring my uni course for a year and undertaking a plan to get myself ready to do things that many other people take for granted: being in the room with other people. In my twelve months preparation I got out more taking screenwriting courses and exercise classes. I had therapy to help me with the social anxiety I had realized had been with me my entire life. I read everything I could about screenwriting, filmmaking and read lots of scripts. I took courses at Raindance and sent my kids to Met Film School with strict instructions to come back and teach me everything they learned.

When I went back to Bournemouth I surprised myself by being able to sit in the classroom and participate in discussions. It was brilliant. I loved my course. My teachers and my classmates were and still are an inspiration to me. I hope they always will be. The people we meet along the journey and collaborate with stay with us. If you're cynical this is called networking. I call it making friends. For you perhaps that is normal, for me it was wonderful and new, for I had lived almost all my adult life (all my life if I’m honest) in a type of isolation of my own making.  And for me it was a way to step out of my bubble. At least for a few days a year.

My journey takes me to the Guerilla Filmmakers Masterclass and the London Screenwriters Festival every year - to top up those friendships, make new ones, to learn a little bit more. And, lo and behold, each time I find I am that little bit closer.

The Effect on my Family and Friends

By 2011, my decision to become a filmmaker was having a massive effect on my life and who I was, and, perhaps unsurprisingly, this was having an effect on the lives of people around me. I just hadn't noticed.

Now this is where my journey may start to sound familiar to those of you who haven't lived as isolated a life as I had:

As you come away from Gfilm with new aspirations, your friends and family will be noticing the difference in you.  And they may not like it. Change breeds insecurity and things that are out of our control create fear. At the start of 2012 my husband, best friend and business partner of 18 years moved out - suddenly and out of the blue. My secure little bubble of existence had popped, leaving the kids and I inexplicably shivering in the real world. A place we hadn't really been before. So much to learn. So much to overcome.

But we did!

It hurt a lot though and I had a whole new set of problems and heartache to deal with. Attending Gfilm became a lifeline for me, as did the London Screenwriter's Festival and completing my MA.

But rather than dealing with all this alone, I now had many friends from the filmmaking and screenwriting community to help me get through it. I thank each and every single one of them for the wonderful support they gave. You are all dearer to me than you know. Especially Chris – you see he’s not just a guerilla filmmaking guru, he’s a mentor on the journey. And he’s been a wonderful friend.

My Return with the Elixir

My adventure has certainly taken me some places I didn't expect. But it's my path and I will walk it. We each live our own hero's journey.

For me in 2013, returning with the elixir was returning to GFilm this time with Adrian by my side. After the acrimony of a divorce, him being beside me represents 18 months of heartache, therapy, couples counseling and a shitload of soul-searching.  (All good grist for the writing mill!)

Adrian are both different people now. Life outside the bubble does that - just like in a movie, the characters are forever changed at the end.  But the surprise is we are both better prepared for the filmmaking journey that I am on. And we are back in business, which is great.

Including those I love in my Journey

By attending GFilm with me, Adrian was able to see what it was all about, meet some of my friends and watch me network.

He realized I hadn't been mad or crazy over the last few years. And that there were in fact lots of people just like me sitting in Tuke Hall.

Best of all, he got to learn from Chris - first hand - the things I've been saying about filmmaking. And I watched again as Chris worked his usual magic to plant the filmmaking seeds in all our hearts during the weekend.

And I watched it happen to Adrian.  On Sunday evening he came out blinking into the June sunshine in Regent's Park, and I could see it in his eyes, that most blessed thing at the end of any story: a call to a new adventure. The start of his own journey into filmmaking.

And that’s a path we can walk together.

The magic worked. Thank you Chris!!

Here’s my advice for new delegates:

  • Do the audit! Do that inventory that Chris suggested. What ARE your strengths? Where ARE your passions? What are your weak spots? And be honest with yourself. That way you are more likely to succeed because you are starting from a firm base.  Even if that base, like mine was, is zero.  Zero is a lot better place to start from than a lie!

    “There’s no point saying there are no weeds in your garden.
    The weeds will take your garden!” – Tony Robbins

  • Who will walk beside you?

    Understand that your family and friends may not understand the change in you as you undertake your journey into filmmaking. Let’s face it, for most people it is kind of odd! Take notice of the feelings of the people in your life. (I didn't realize the effect my changes were having on the lives of those around me - but that didn't mean that we weren't able to get onto the same page in the end!)Talk to them about movies; find out what they like, use their strengths and their interests to include them in your filmmaking. (Consider making a film about your partner's sports team or your children's drama production. Let them see the benefits of this new you!!)

    And maybe consider taking those you love along to the next Guerilla Filmmakers Masterclass with you. Who knows, maybe they will catch the bug themselves. Then you not only have moral support - you have a production team!

Have fun with filmmaking. And enjoy the journey!

Thanks for reading. I love feedback so please get in touch or better yet send me a tweet. (If you're not on Twitter, joining today would be a positive step on your journey!)


Back from Gfilm. And wow!

June 17th, 2013

Wow! What a weekend at Guerilla Filmmakers Masterclass!!!

Now I'm home and organising my notes. (I keep them  all and they get a little more detailed every year as more of it sinks in a little deeper!) I'm also networking with my friends old and new from GFilm 2013 on Twitter. (New delegates: remember to follow up those contacts! Don't just get home and forget about it! Opportunity is knocking!)

Update: What I'm up to…

Screenwriting is going well and the filmmaking side of the business is hotting up quickly with several new shorts shooting in the next few months.

As always I am writing articles on a variety of subjects from personal development to new tech and screenwriting, filmmaking and photography. Also researching some long tail projects too.

I am busy preparing for the London Screenwriter's Festival. I made a commitment last year that this year I will pitch! I am keeping that promise and my friends will keep me to it!  Pitching is a new step for me (although I did get to pitch to Slumdog Millionaire assoc producer Ivanna MacKinnon as part of my MA course and I didn't die from the experience!)

Setting Goals

All nicely chunk-able, doable steps with measurable success. (So go ahead make your plan!!)

It's the start of the journey and, as Chris Jones said at Gfilm:

it's the journey not the destination that counts

Update … PHP, filmmaking, fun!

May 29th, 2013

20070226zcI'm enjoying working with WordPress again and mucking about with PHP. It's been a while, so I'm more than a little rusty. It's like riding a bike though, right? You never really forget … :p

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

Geek Rage: AirPlay Devices!

January 22nd, 2013

Don't get me wrong - I LOVE Apple's AirPlay.

Being able to send music and video wirelessly from iPhone or Apple TV or AirPort Express is brilliant and so beautifully implemented. I love the whole ecosystem. Mirroring Mac screen or iPad screen onto a large screen via Apple TV has saved my neck on many occasions and facilitated some excellent screen sharing writing and video editing collaborations.

The problem comes when it comes to the audio output because, let's face it, television speakers are generally pretty crap.

Unless you want to pay a lot of money for dedicated AirPlay speakers, Apple TV only has optical audio output. AirPort Express only has 3.5mm jack output.  So what speakers do you connect your AirPlay device to?

When it comes to outputting it seems there are three choices: Surround sound, PC Speakers or the iPhone Dock.

Surround Sound

Surround sound systems are increasingly turning into a full home 5.1 cinema setups that includes Blu-ray and massive feature speakers.  I haven't found one yet that offers AirPlay yet. And few of those set ups include Bluetooth (for when you want to let someone play music without sharing your wifi password).

PC Speakers

Something smaller with 2.1 speakers and a wireless sub-woofer would be ideal for a work setup.

AirPlay Dock

The only other alternative is the AirPlay enabled dock. Most of the ones I've found don't actually allow you to dock your iPhone or iPod for playback now - instead they offer only a USB port for charging.  So you're stuck with AirPlay only.  A few of the AirPlays docks available offer Bluetooth as well but that's all. You can't plug in an iPod or any other device now.

Why can't one device have it all?

My bugbear is the lack of multimedia output convergence devices - or in other words speaker setups that do it all. Why do I have to choose between the ability to use the new wireless technologies as well as keeping the ability to use the old legacy methods? I know it costs companies to license AirPlay from Apple - fair enough, but seriously the cost of putting a 3.5mm jack input and optical and digital audio inputs has suddenly put the price up so high they can't afford to manufacture it?? And I've yet to see any that support Apple's new lightning connectors for the iPhone 5 or the iPad 4. Still. (What has audio output technology ground to a halt lately??) Updated: OK there are some out there, but few if any available in the UK yet.

So hey, Sony, Panasonic, Logitech, Phillips - how about it? Embrace the new AND keep the old. AirPlay is here to stay, but let's face it most of us still have PCs, DVD and video players, iPods with earphone sockets and 30-pin connectors that we'd like to plug in as well as airplay over wifi networks that are increasingly struggling under the bandwidth weight of streaming music, movies, downloads as well as airplay to speakers.

(And don't get me started on in-car audio setups, which are still lagging behind on the iPhone 5 in terms of Bluetooth compatibility and the lightning connector. Another bugbear!!)

Luckily today I found this link to help share my PC speaker system between PC and Apple's AirPort Express's 3.5mm outputs.  Sometimes you have to go Old School to get the new tech to do what you want. Happy at last.

Geek rage over. For now ... 😉

London Screenwriters’ Festival 2012 – Julie Gray

October 30th, 2012

The London Screenwriters' Festival 2012, like the previous years, was incredible.

Personal high points for me were talking to Writer/Director Mike Leigh and chatting with Doug Naylor and Robert Llewelyn of Red Dwarf fame.

I learned so much - it's really impossible to distill it into a single blog post. So I shall start off with the amazing session by Julie Gray: You ARE the Hero of the Journey

Julie GrayThe session proved both instructive and inspirational by inviting us to use our painful experiences or our writing, and, in doing so, employ the writing process as a type of therapy. This is an idea that is not unfamiliar to me, but Julie has straight-talking manner that slices straight through that natural resistance that makes you want to hide from your pain, and she very quickly helps you begin to accept the tough stuff you've had to deal with and move on to reaping it as good grist for your writing mill.

So once you're ready to use your pain, it's time to inflict it on your characters!! New writers, she said, are afraid to put their characters through hell.

"Fall in love with your character one page 100, not on page one."

Interview your character to find out everything about them and then use their vulnerabilities.

Think about the positive qualities that you admire - that's the place they might be at the end of the story arc - but to bring those positive qualities to life they have to fail. As do we!

"Great writers write about what scares them, what makes them uncomfortable," Julie says.

"Writers are entrusted with being the inspiration for others. But first, you have to be courageous to do that in your own life."

Words to live by. Words to write by!

Many thanks to Julie Gray for the inspiration and advice.

More soon…

Blogging break

June 6th, 2012

I'm going to be taking a break from this blog for a while. Lots to do, lots to think about. Time to step back and concentrate on the non-virtual world for a while.

Back soon!
