Actually I don't have a short fuse today - as per my post title - but thought it sounded more interesting. Tsk.
Just another quick dip in and out for me just now as a lot of today has been spent running through piles of leaves in the park, pushing swings with all my might and then trying to get the odd word typed here and there. Time is very precious at the moment and I have to run my days like a Sandhurst text book operation, squeezing in all the usual stuff as well as keeping on top of my obsessive word count for NaNoWriMo. As of last night "Taking the Fast Lane" was sitting at 12,680 words, so it's moving on.
First up, a couple more job opportunities:
- Assistant Script Editor, BBC Drama Series & Serials, London : 6 month fixed term contract/Attachment (Maternity cover)
- Script Editor , BBC Drama Series & Serials, London: 1 x 12 month fixed term contract/attachment and 1 x 6 month fixed term contract/Attachment (Mat Cover)
Well, back to NaNoWriMo. It *seems* to be going ok, apart from the fact I keep panicking myself by thinking I'm running out of plot/words/fingers. I have now completed "Part One" (of four) of the book and am wading my way into "Part Two". When I had two minutes spare yesterday (a bit like now), I very bravely filled in the 'synopsis' and 'excerpt sections' of the 'Novel Info' page on the NaNoWriMo site, so if you want to read what kind of trash a totally unplanned novel reads like (no editing has taken place), then please feel free to check it out here. [Please note: it contains bad language, bad imagery & more than likely very bad writing].
Urgh. I'm probably really going to regret that, aren't I? [There's still time to remove the link... No! Be brave, Tenacious You...it'll be ok - they're all lovely your bloggie-buds...]
Other than that, not a lot has been happening apart from the usual day to day writerly drift.
I am still waiting to see what happens with my film, "three" - the closing date was the end of August and no decision has been made yet (the second round has also now closed...)! So that really has been the longest wait on earth. Never mind, next Monday is the closing date for Screen East's DigiBytes and Digital Nation , and seeing as they have a strict timetable to adhere to, all final decisions after interviews etc (hopefully) should be revealed just before Christmas.
Have a good weekend all. Not sure what I'm up to...ha ha ha. Onwards.
