Recently, I have been finishing a script. I wanted to set the story in Cornwall and it was great to visit all the locations I included. I have been revisiting some of the photos from my last time there, just to check I represent the place accurately.
When you write scripts for TV, you never know if they will be made. You hope, but if you are like me and don't have a TV agent, the dream becomes even harder.
I have found that I don't need an agent to publish my novels, and they have done well, but TV is a different game.
There are many competitions, however, for budding TV and film writers, where you can find ways onto the ladder without one at the start. One of the best place to check out the opportunities if you are in the UK is the BBC Writersroom.
I was lucky enough to work there for six months, and they were lovely people. I am absolutely sure nothing has changed. The core reason it exists is to find new writers and encourage them on their journey.
So, if you are thinking about it, why not give it a try?
