Well today is the deadline for the 2013 Sir Peter Ustinov Scriptwriting Award, run by the international Emmys and I have just sent in my script for consideration.
Having only a month to conceive of an idea and write a 30-60 minute script was certainly a challenge, but I did manage it (just about!)
Having wasted the first two weeks on an idea I couldn’t cement and the last 2 weeks procrastinating (where I only managed to write a quick first draft), I left most of the work to the last five days. So I don’t expect to win.
Regardless, I am happy having completed the 45 or so minute script and hope I can keep the momentum going into the next project, whatever that may be.
