I'm 35 years old. All being well, and if I can keep my addiction to crack-heroin at bay, I've got a rough average of another 35 years on this planet. So I'm halfway through my existence.
The first 35 years of my life have been dominated by me writing about the creative achievements of other people, as a journalist.
The next 35 years of my life will be dominated by other people writing about my creative achievements as a screenwriter.
That's the attitude, no?
If my calculations are correct, then by 2043, when I plug my name into Google, it won't say 'Did you mean Jake Arnott?'.
