So last week I found out about the Scriptwriting in Practise course, being run this summer by MMU and North West Playwrights. Luckily I spotted it the night before the deadline so I was able to send something in – and was accepted!

Which means in a little over a week I’ll be starting the course and writing a forty-five minute script. I will be posting about my progress in the workshops and writing the script, so keep an eye out for my exploits on that front.

I really love scriptwriting, it’s much more immediate than prose, but I also find it quite challenging as you’re so restricted on what you can describe. On the other hand, I tend to write a lot of dialogue and only short, tight descriptions where I can, which I guess should be good practise for scriptwriting. The story I’m using is actually a novel idea I had a few ideas, so trying to push it into a script shape will be really interesting.
