About taking a break, writing, Dan, script troubles, the Isle of Man and OK, there is a tiny bit of B. too.
- You just have to keep your eyes open.
- It’s the first of February and I find myself hugely enjoying a milky way tea while listening to a Christmas song (no you don’t have to guess which one, we all know).
- I managed to start early today (9am) which means I can go early today too.
- I gave Dan a kiss on the cheek yesterday (the film has been taken off the cinema program now), we won’t be hanging out for a while so I ordered the cleverly written script of the film and will be eagerly waiting for the DVD. I have dated Dan 10 times, and every single one of them was good. I wish Dan all the best, and promise to Be Prepared To Be Surprised. Where to find real boyfriends like that?
- Well there is this incredibly cute guy working in the office opposite us. Don’t worry I am too Lawrence to do anything at all and he’s probably married with children.
- I have the title, I have several tag lines (lines to put on the poster), and I have digged out the theme more or less – for my script. I also have a headache and a major struggle with it. I think it all leads back to the fact that it is not a good idea to make a short film, write a feature script and do a full time job at the same time. I think my brain burned down a couple of days ago, and I am not sure I can do a proper rewrite for my last weekend in screen writing class. This is not a major disaster – Sam does private sessions too, so I will continue to work on my script as long as it needs to be working on.
Another problem I have with this script – I am so attached to it, I can’t stand the idea of other people making the film (if that is ever going to happen) without being involved. The thought of them casting the wrong actors for the roles is, at this moment, unbearable.
- And as a last, I think my next destination for a holiday is going to be the Isle of Man (it’s the island located in the Irish sea between the UK and Ireland). It seems like the perfect replacement for Bornholm to me, I love being on an island (I live on one!), and it might also be a good place to practise “driving on the other side of the road”. A return flight from London is about £100 and there are loads of lovely B&B’s where you can stay relatively cheap. And there is sea and beach and lighthouses, basically: it sounds like heaven. And like a perfect place to write.
Another reason why I want to go there is because I have chosen it as a location in my script. The Isle of Man is a popular film location, a lot of films get shot there, among them being Billicious productions like Lawless Heart, Stormbreaker and I capture the castle. So the perfect location for a break and for someone who is interested in films.
- I wish you a good weekend.
