(123) Me-me

Me,me,me,me!
I dunno, but this blog seems to be all about me!

And scriptwriting.
Hope yours is going well. Pray do tell in the comments section...

Anyhow, that sexy young bonkers Nun over at Lock and load has me -me'd me thus:-

'When it comes to writing, what do you know you're good at, and what aspect of writing are you worst at? (Procrastination is not permitted as either part of the answer.)'


Well, goodness, gracious, modesty forbids et al, but I actually do think I'm good at
conjuring up a story out of a few words, a scene, or a fog of an idea that barges its way into my otherwise empty brain.

I'm a bit more of a stranger to discipline than I'd like to be (ooh- er, missus,calm down at the back, the discipline of getting down to actual "proper" writing when I can, I mean). I'm not sure I'm au fait with "Lord Structure" and, oh, yeah, I also fink I'm krap at speling...

Others tell me I'm very good at dialogue, my lead characters are well drawn and my plots are exciting and engaging.


They also tell me my structuring can be too loose, my minor characters can sometimes be mere ciphers for the story, and I'm krap at speling...

So, there you go.
I need to work on structure, minor players, discipline, and spelling...

I me-me everybody and anybody who hasn't already been me-me'd. If you haven't got a blog reply in the comments bit, just add your name or pseudonym after your fine words.

Cheers, Sheiky

Re: Your Bosoms: So, I take it you wnon't be using that as your new logo?

Arf! I wouldn't want to give the wrong impression. It may well send extra traffic to my blog but think how disappointed they'll be...

Theey wouldn't be disapointed, Madam, you're gorgeous!
