Research started. Pen put to paper. Incredibly general plot structure decided upon. Crikey, at this rate I might actually manage to write something...but dont hold your breath.

That is all.

Final Draft...prepare to be used!

After several days of loafing around the house looking through the notes I had made for my long-in-development sci-fi noir novel "13th Earth", I have decided that the whole premise needs a serious overhaul if I am ever to get around to finishing (...or is that starting) writing the bloody thing in any format accepted by publishers.

I have too many pages of (often conflicting) notes to give up on the idea totally, but I need to lay it to one side for a while and remember how it feels to write. So I am going to fire up Final Draft and have a go at getting a screenplay off the ground. It may well turn out to be shite, but at least it is practice. I feel a contemporary reimagining of some video nasties coming on!
