2004: My short script Life 2.0 is a runner-up in the British Short Screenplay Competition.
2007: My short script You're All Going To Die doesn't even make the Second Round.
Have I regressed? Was Life 2.0 really a better script than You're All Going To Die? Personally, I think YAGTD is way stronger, but the Kaos Films folk disagreed. Way it goes. Move on, nothing to see here. If I wasn't such a self-assured type, it might slightly chip at the old confidence, coming as it does mere hours after I sent off my Red Planet Prize entry...
I'm pretty damn sure that Lucy's in Round Two, though, so congrats, Luce! Oh, and the same goes for Elinor and Christine! Hooray. Who else is ploughing forward, flying our Scribosphere flag beside them, hmmmm? Feel free to tell me. I promise not to (a) hate you or (b) turn up on your doorstep, with a garden gnome tucked under my arm.
In Other News, I interviewed Elisabeth Sladen for 90 minutes this morning, in Selfridges. As she's a childhood heroine of mine, having appeared in the classic Doctor Who series and now in her own upcoming show The Sarah Jane Adventures, it was a wonderfully surreal experience. And a damn fine chinwag.
