Script Writing Course Jan 26/27

I am printing out my film script, getting my weekend suitcase packed, pencils sharpened and at the ready!  I can barely contain my excitement for my weekend script writing course with Colin Bateman, no not Batman, Bateman!


You know the way some novelists sit on their corderoy posteriors and bemoan writers block? Well that’s not Colin – at last count he had written published and promoted 21 books.  I first discovered him years ago with Divorcing Jack – which was a black witty alternative take on the underbelly of life in Belfast.  It was ground-breaking.

Well in the last few years he has conceived and written Murphys Law which stars Jimmy Nesbitt.  He has also been a screenwriter on a number of movies and now an Irish language series on TG4.

My screenwriting lecturer was enthusing about Colin, saying he was best in his genre in the BBC now. 

So I will focus, listen, ask, soak up and immerse myself. 


Of course there is also the opportunity to meet up with my sister and neice as well which is always a bonus without kids 🙂


So watch this space. Here comes Colin!!
