What I would like to try – Day 5 of the June writing challenge

Posted on Updated on

And so day five has come and nearly gone for the @sofluid write a blog post per day challenge. So, far I have really enjoyed participating in this. Not only has it made me focus on writing a few paragraphs, but it has also given me a few extra followers to my blog http://www.northernscribbler.com and to my twitter account @sarahcassidy.

The thing that I would like to try is joining a writing team on a soap such as my favourite which is Hollyoaks, and see how I would manage writing other people’s characters.

One of my assignments for my MA Scriptwriting was to work collaboratively on a radio drama. It was challenging at first as there were some big personalities in the team, but after a few weeks we got to know each other better and began to devise a full eight part drama. For me the experience was valuable, as previously I had only written my own ideas and devised my own characters.

Therefore the thing I would like to try would be attending an actual story conference, and to be given the opportunity to write an episode of television of my own. Of course getting that first writing credit under my belt would be a dream come true.

I would also like to try joining a book club, but at the moment I don’t have the time to commit myself to reading in the short space of time that these groups command.

It’s taken me nearly a month to get 43% through ‘We need to talk about Kevin” and I’m reading that each evening before bedtime. Maybe when I am a successful writer and I can choose my working hours, will I be able to return to being the book worm that I once was as a teenager. book club
