Had lunch with two other writers yesterday, Danny (he of the superb blog) and Matt (who doesn't have a blog). A writer without a blog?? Snakes on a plane! Naturally we urged him to get one immediately, otherwise people might talk. We had a great time, chatting about things we've been through, discussing projects that went well or fell apart, and, obviously, bitching about various people. I had planned on doing a big overhaul of my pathetically small links section over there on the right, but have decided instead to just link to Danny's page, as he has a fearsome collection of links to writing blogs, writing sites, and all kinds of useful information. I'd only be duplicating his one anyway, so it's not laziness at all, honest guv. If any aspiring writers come here, you really should check his site out, it's full of opportunities to break into the business. Mine's really more of a sweary travelogue, with occasional snippets of info about the writing game. I'm going to try and make it more informative though, I've been slacking off in that department.
Saw the first ep of My Name Is Earl last night, starring the always brilliant Jason Lee. I really enjoyed it, it's a great concept, and although it can get a bit self-consciously wacky, it keeps the surprises coming thick and fast, and is really quite sweet. Check it out if you get a chance.
Just sent off the latest changes to Curfew, it's really coming along nicely. There are still one or two issues we haven't fully explored, but it works as it is. I've also typed up some notes for a possible rewrite job - the low budget horror project I mentioned a few posts back. I've worked with them before, and they're good guys. They want me to do it, I want me to do it, but I just want them to know what direction I'll take it in first, so we're all happy. I'll finish the notes today, and send them off. It's a really cool story, and I'm dying to get my teeth into it. So I'll finish this post, and get on with that.
