Had a grand evening with director Dan. After sensibly discussing treatment tweaks - largely centring on changing the function of one character and keeping our original idea intact - we got down to some booze in an old-school Elstree hotel bar, which was lent even more personality by a passionate posse of German card players.
So now, I need to update the treatment, ready to spend October writing the script. And before that, there's a short script to work on, which Dan's planning to film fairly soon. Oh yes, it's all happening...
Had the pleasure of bumping into Paul Campbell at the train station this morning - he and a colleague were arriving for another day at the BBC's Writing Academy, which is now in its second week. As he says in his latest post, it's "bloody hard work", but in an immensely positive way. Which kinda sums up writing as a whole, doesn't it?
