What I learnt this week: Let’s backtrack

This week was all about going back to square one.

(NB I’m slowly catching up on bloggy!)

I was working on a script recently and I kept hitting road blocks.  This was due to a few character issues.  To fix these problems I needed to dig deeper and head back to beginning.  A place where I didn’t want to go.

It was painful in more ways than one but completely necessary.  Sometimes you have to go backwards in order to move forwards.

Other than that my week was spent writing, researching (which basically consisted of watching a bunch of films that relate to the tone of my script) and working, pretty standard.

Oh apart from being in bed sick for three days straight with what I think was a version of the black plague.  On the plus side I was able to get loads of writing done!

Oh, oh and I had drinks with Kamila my old manager on Monday night, it was nice to catch up after sooo long.

Oh, oh, oh and dinner with Jess on Thursday.  Went to the ‘Castle’- which is our local.  Shared a nice bottle of Italian wine and tapas.  We also discovered the worlds best brownies!

Owww, and I did head to the ‘Chatty’ on Sunday night with Jess and Zoe for a steak and a couple of bevies.  Then danced the night away.  And kissed a very cute boy from Kiwi land.  Walked home with the girls, stopping for ice cream on the way.

What a nice end to the week 🙂

Me and Jess

Funniest moment:

  • Watching ‘Never been kissed,’  I never realised how good that film was!

What I did that scared me:

  • Didn’t change my T-shirt for 3 days when I was ill…believe me that was scary!


  • Girly catch ups
  • Finishing my new script sequence outline
  • Kissing a Kiwi


  • Plague
  • Plague
  • Plague

What I learnt:

  • Sometimes you have to go backwards in order to move forwards!
