Yay! I have an interview for the Screenwriting MA next Monday!

So I have just under a week to panic madly about what they're going to ask me. Will they ask for more ideas? Will they ask why I want to write? Will I be asked all the same questions I was when I went to chat to the lecturer? (Hopefully...)

On the plus side, I've decided that this means my writing was good. The way I see it, they accept interview candidates based on their application submissions - which mostly comprises the script and single page proposal - and will judge interviewees on their interviews. So if I don't get into the course now, it's because of my personality, not my writing! Woo!

The above all makes sense in my head. Anyway, I'm very excited. Also, this should mean that I find out one way or another by the middle of May as apparently all interviewees are informed of the University's decision within 2 weeks of interview. So whether I get into the course or not, I'll be able to plan ahead better than I can just now!

University Application

So that's been a whole week since I sent away my application, and I don't even know if they've processed the forms in the registry to send onto the department. How long's this going to take, I wonder?

I want to find out for sure whether or not I've got a place within the next month, otherwise I think the stress of it will kill me. When I chatted to the lecturer about the course last week he seemed really positive, but surely the fact that I did Maths is going to count against me. I liked my script, but I'm not convinced about my film spec, so I don't feel uber confident in my writing.


Roll on 5pm. I'm going to write my little heart out this weekend, I'm planning on working on my novel for a bit. I think I need to restructure the story again, I think I need a proper villan of the piece... More on that on Monday...

First Post

Well, here we go. Trying to start a blog to track any progress I make writing...

I am writing a novel and applying for a MA in writing too, so hopefully I will be able to write on this with some amount of frequency!
