I'm a career changer with a natural inclination to write drama due to many years working with children and families. I'm sure you can imagine the numerous stories and distinct personalities I've met along the way. However, I have left that service to focus on writing and look forward to celebrating my 1st option and writing credit in the near future.
After many years spending time on/off the performance poetry circuit and involved in various arts and charity projects, I explored the possibility of becoming a screenwriter. It has been an 'interesting' and frustrating learning curve and no doubt will continue to be so.
I have been fortunate in that I've had interest and received great feedback regarding my scripts, like most emerging writers, I'm busy re-drafting which I actually enjoy and need to learn when to stop. My focus for 2018 is to complete current projects rather than getting sidetracked with new ideas and requests to write for free - I'm sure most new writers experience that. There's also room for improvement with my networking so, if you feel like connecting, you're welcome to make contact.
