Bless me reader, it’s been two weeks since my last confession. I have been busy, though. Lots of family stuff – weddings and babies, all good. Some blighter dented the passenger door on my mid-life crisis- you can imagine how upset I was! My only consolation is that the other car must look worse, judging by the amount of paint they left behind.
Back in the summer when I started this blog, one of my promises was that I would write something every week. I have stuck to this, more or less, erring towards ‘less’ if I’m honest but I’m not going to beat myself up about it.
Anyway…ta-da! Today I completed the first draft of Act One Scene One of my as yet untitled panto. It needs some jokes but I am quite pleased with the result. I also had a light-bulb moment and solved a problem that crops up later in Act 2. I am aware that I go back to Uni next week so will be caught up in reading and watching films – it will be interesting to see if the areas I am studying will impact on the panto. Hollywood cinema? Hmmmm- maybe I can write in a car chase?
At the moment I am keeping the script ( ha! its only 6 pages long) close to my chest but I am planning to get together with my acting buddies to get some feedback/ suggestions. There will be wine. In the meantime, if anyone has any suitable jokes they wish to share, I am more than happy to hear them.
