Facebook memories proving I’m now old enough to have ten years of Facebook memories. Oh how young and full of energy we were. I was able to have an evening in AND and evening out all in the one evening! Mind you it was easier when living in Dublin. Everything was closer together. #energy #youth #tenyears #dublin #irish #nightout #clubbing #whatisthat #oldwoman #drunk #thepast

2008 vs 2018. 
What you’ll notice here is how I am a proper grown up in both pics, as opposed to the horrifying images I’m seeing of pre-pubed teens that I have been casually considering my fellow grown up friends. You’re all far too young, be gone from my life at once! 
Also, trawling through my 2018 pics, it was virtually impossible to find a photo where my head wasn’t surgically attached to someone else’s. I need to up my selfie quota. Another sign of how aged I be. 
Right, I’m off to buy a nice urn to spend my impending afterlife in. As you were. .

Aaah, planning a film script. One of life’s little treasures. 🤯
This has been a tough week having to go back and pull my script apart, find the structural issues, solve them and rebuild. But I love a puzzle and my mind is happiest when it’s being challenged. And there’s nothing more satisfying than a breakthrough. My script will be the better for it. And thank you to the masters for your words of wisdom. Always return to your screenwriting books, you are never an expert and you’ll never know everything, embrace being the eternal student. .

Structure, Structure, Structure. 
Yep, it’s structure reworking day on Sequins the feature film. Trying to nail some key issues . 
With the help of my mentor, 21st Century Screenplay by Linda Aronson, a white board and a cork board, things are starting to lay themselves out as I work through each act and each turning point.
The hard work of a script is learning to be okay with pulling apart and stitching it back together time and again, but I know that listening to notes and finding the key elements in this work will be worth it and the next draft stronger for it.
As scriptwriters we should never close ourselves off from the gift of learning, developing our craft. We are never the expert, we are merely getting a little better each time we open a book and find a new way.

Had my first session with my Scriptwriting mentor on Tuesday and I couldn’t be more grateful for the knowledge and wisdom he imparted on me. Been mulling it over for the last two days and ready to get stuck into the graft of structure tomorrow to tweak some issues.
It’s important to have someone you trust to look at your work, particularly when you’re so close to it and struggle to see it in another light. That person will open up so many new possibilities with their fresh perspective and things suddenly start to make sense. 
Onwards, to draft 2. .

Back where it all began at my uni library making good use of my alumni status and using it as an office to script edit. It’s all about going where the procrastination can’t find me. .

I was so dubious about this film from the moment I heard it was being made. My childhood fave, had little faith they’d do a new one justice. Happily, I was wrong. And Emily Blunt was just exquisite. Well done all round, it was supercaliexcellent.
