(87) a quick troll round the blogosphere...




...to catch up on what I missed whilst away. I actually came back on the 30th but had work/life/usual things etc to sort out before I could crank up the old WWW.

First, my thanks to Super Nun, Lady Elinor of London for dispatching my prize from her comp, "Story" by Robert Mckee, to greet me on my return from my adventures. Anyone know if it is any good?

Loads of you went to SWF, maybe next year for me, when I've more to pitch, more experience/confidence to blag people into believing/assuming I know what I'm talking about...

Looking forward to reading your reports, when you recover from the hangovers,info overload and lost voices from all that pitching and networking. First SWF blog I've found is David Bishop's excellent highlights here and, even better for Dave, he got in free as a guest speaker!

Sir Jason of Arnopp has King Steven of Moffat's exclusive interview here
Shared only with only us, his virtual buddies, and the few billion readers of Dr Who mag.

Word Lords Sir Daniel Stack and Sir Robin Kelly have the lowdown, with loadsa links, about something called the Red Dwarf prize or summat, here and here, though I've never heard of it and probably neither have any of you...

Information Queen, Her Majesty Lucinda Vee has a brilliant research list here to help give all your scripts an edge of realism.

Lady Rachael, of Castle Howard, tells us here about the success of her latest plays and the dangers of encouraging all those pesky new speccy writers...

"Talking" of new writers (well, new to me, anyway) check out Brendan O'Neill and Scampenstein . I wish I'd thought of it; I think he can sell this on the title and poster alone!

Duchess Potters reports on the Sharman Macdonald talk she attended here

Scribe Oli needs your vote here to help him decide on his next exciting opus...

Now, surfing done, bashing out this quick round up has made me come over all strange, an old feeling I've not had for a while,I've got to go write before it goes...

It's good to be back!

"See" you all soon,
Sheiky, xxx
