Blimey, I can't believe I actually finished the big FAQ. Thank you for all the comments and feedback on it, very much appreciated. I'll add to it when necessary, and will probably do new posts linking to the edited bits when that happens. There's now a link to it in the sidebar, too. I've also added a special button to the end of every post, that lets you share it on other sites. You can now send any post, if you so wish, to people on Twitter, Digg, Facebook, and any number of sites that are not AT ALL about procrastinating, how dare you even suggest such a thing, I'm doing research, shut up.
The writing has been going well too, finished first draft of the TV script last week, then a TV outline/bible thingy this week, as well as sample scenes for the horror comedy movie I'm working on with some colleagues. There are another couple of potential movie things in the works, and two more new TV series at early development stage. I'm loving the work, after my time off, and long may it continue. I'll update about anything that moves forward, but at the moment most of it is a good way away from the screen, which doesn't make for exciting bloggery just yet. But I'll keep talking about stuff in my usual vague, nonsensical way. Also something Very Exciting may be happening this year, if I get off my arse and do something about it. More later.
My next upcoming TV thing will be Primeval, which starts this Saturday 28th March on ITV. I did the 2nd episode, which will air on the 4th April. The website has info and an interactive game, and you can follow Primeval on Twitter for other updates. After that, the next thing I've got on telly will be Torchwood, which I can exclusively reveal will be hitting your screens... sometime between right now and December 31st. No, I don't know.
The BAFTA Television Awards nominations have been released, and I'm very excited to have worked on two of the shows nominated in the Drama Series category - Doctor Who, and Spooks. So if they win, I can claim to be partially responsible - and will do so, naturally, as loud as possible. And because there are four shows nominated, I have a 50% chance of sharing in that glory. Nice!
If you've been toying with the idea of writing that spec film script, then why not go for it in April, with the Script Frenzy - write a 100 page script, in April, over 30 days. Bear in mind that in telly, you often get 2 weeks for a 60 page first draft - less if possible. 30 days is more than enough, if you can do 4 pages a day then you'll even finish early. And I reckon it doesn't have to be 100, a 90 pager is perfectly fine, especially if it's a genre flick. As long as it's about 90 or more, and finished, then I say you're a winner. Go for it.
And finally, don't forget you can still follow me on Twitter - if you don't, you've already missed several shared video watching frenzies (including The Hoff, Mr T, and some devil music), and a late night, drunken discussion about what constitutes a "spectacular rock epic" (i.e., NOT Def Leppard or 30 Seconds To Mars, yes, Kerrang TV station, I'm talking to you). See what you're missing?? How can you possibly stay away??
