Since leaving University, I have been doing a lot (and I mean A LOT) of thinking about where I want to go in life but I have to come to the conclusion that I need to pull my finger out and start doing work. I’ve said before that I am now a writer but if I am honest, I haven’t been doing as much as I’d like. This is sometimes my fault like wasting a day doing the Harlem Shake and sometimes down to Arsenal who leave me depressed. But, it’s up to me to motivate myself and that is exactly what I’m doing right now.
I’m writing this on a daily basis, obviously and I’m working on a script for T.V. but I’m remaining quite tight lipped over the contents, as I want it surprise people. I know people need proof but an artist wouldn’t show you a half-finished painting so you’ll have to wait and see. Also, I would like to write a fiction book but it’s probably best if I wait until the script is completed. I need to read more books so that I know where to start from and I need to have more concrete ideas. And no, it won’t be soft porn.
So, the blog is a good starting point and the screenplay is like a mini project but I would like to start being a proper freelance journalist as well. I want to start going out and finding stories, just like the article I done on the new Simon Pegg film. The only way I can do this is by going out and about. For example, I’m planning on going to the Fawlty Towers restaurant in the West End to write a piece about it. Not exactly ground breaking but it all helps.
Another thing I tried was setting up the ‘We Know More Than You’ blog and invited fellow writers to guest blog. However, I haven’t been too successful in finding recruits so I’ll guest write for other people instead if they want ‘Wheelchair Boy’ to invade.
Right, I stopped scriptwriting to update all those interested in my life. Back to work I must go.
Bye for now!
