Blimey, that was good fun - the live Twitter chat thingy went really well, everyone was really nice, and nobody shouted "OMG U SUCK LOLZ", which was a relief. If you missed it, or have only recently watched the episode, you can see the whole thing starting from here - I'm posting as "itvprimeval", just keep clicking the "Newer" link to go through all the posts. Thanks, ITV people, for letting me login to your account, and sorry for making fun of one of the adverts during a break, but it *was* bloody disturbing ("Mummy - I'm going to have a POO. Yes, a POO. I'm going for a POO now" - okay, okay, I get it, thanks for that image at teatime by the way)
There's a short interview about the episode over at the Den of Geek here, which I completely forgot to mention before the show, because I'm rubbish.
Speaking of interviews, I did a really fun one a while ago for Whotopia magazine, and the first half (I ramble a lot) is out now. Pop over to the website and check out the magazine. Tell em Uncle Jimbo sent you. As added incentive, I'm on the cover, and am the jam in a Matt Smith/Bonnie Langford sandwich. Yeah. Yeah, you like that.
The Writing FAQ got a lovely mention over at the blog of author Nicola Morgan, who quite correctly points out my failure to mention boots, chocolate, and sparkly wine as crucial elements of the creative process. Also, the importance of NOT putting sweets or other cutesy stuff in with a submission - it won't make you seem quirky and fun, it will instead have the same effect as smearing the words "I IS MAD" on a sheet of paper using your own faeces. Great, I've lowered the tone again, now she's going to regret sending people over here from her respectable blog... Sorry. Anyway, check out Nicola's blog, which is full of fantastic, detailed advice - it's aimed at authors, but many of it crosses over and applies to screenwriting too - agents, query letters, and so on.
