(12) Return of the Sheik

Just got back from saucy week in the sun.

The cheerful Fun Friday pics will resume next week.

Just got time to say thanks to Sir Robin Kelly whose offer of feedback on two of my new script outlines I was gratefully accepted here at the Oasis.
His feedback was, as ever, very informative and pointed out a few “think agains” as well as the ever needed encouragement.
Thanks again, Robin. (See in my “all you need to know –UK” alongside for his top blog/web sites.)

Also a big thank you to the lovely Liz Hobbs from Movie scope Mag who’s sorted my free subscription that I won on the divine Miz Vee’s (should be) award winning blog site.

The first iss (vol 1 no6) has an interview with Sir Steven Moffat…top TV screenwriter ( the 2 best ever Dr Who’s; “Blink” , “The girl in the fireplace” etc etc).
He’s now being courted by Hollywood….a chap called Spielberg or something has signed him for the big budget new Tin Tin movie…
And there's a 2 page article bythe great W.C. Martell of sex in a sub fame!
It’s a top mag . Try a teaser at http://www.moviescopemag.com/

Upon my return I managed to catch a certain Mr James Moran’s “Torchwood” episode…
Loved the way it related to today’s troubles.
Beware, they are amongst us. Plotting.

But hopefully their plots are not as good as James’s
Was going to pop over to his blog to congratulate him but, you know, an ironic 69 people have already said all there is to say and apparently his head is expanding.
Apparently he wrote a film too… See http://www.jamesmoran.blogspot.com/

Also caught up with this great (FREE!) offer on top blogger (new dad and all round nice bloke) and the first UK screenwriter to have his own web page, Dom Carver’s blog

Check it out.

He’ll give you a report on your script’s dialogue if you’re one of the first five in his inbox.
He’s got 7 years experience and that fancy Uni degree so this is an offer not to miss.
Go on. Send it now! (One of mine’s hopefully in so there’s only 4 spaces left-hurry!)

His excellent web page, with his script samples etc is at http://www.thescriptwriter.co.uk/

I’ll post a writing update Monday including news on of a possible….
Nah, I tell you Monday!

Regards, Sheikspear
