The purpose of this blog has been mainly to give a practical and realistic insight into what it’s like trying to maintain a career as a scriptwriter (and script reader) in the UK. Well, friends, we need blog no more as Tim Clague, the Bafta nominated writer/director (and Bournemouth legend), has come up with the perfect diagram summation of The Scriptwriter’s Life.
Basically, Tim’s diagram (and I’m not usually a fan of illustrations of this type) highlights the key areas in which a scriptwriter, whether he be amateur or professional, should be spending his time. Everything from the personal, professional to heck, the down right spiritual: what you need to be reading, researching and writing in your goal to become a professional scribe.
Check it out.
Print it off.
And post it over your computer.
All other blogs are now redundant.*
