From time to time, i think about how Sy and i met.
It's funny how fate deals us a hand that we may not understand at the time, but i believe everything happens for a reason.
Meeting Sy has catapulted me into a world that i knew nothing about, and have had to learn about as best i can, as fast as i can. I previously wrote a blog entitled 'Things i have learned about my writer.'
That was a couple of months ago now, and it's time to add to it, although the thoughts are a bit random.
1; When Sy writes a script, It is not finished after one draft.
2; No matter how good his work is, he still has to have an editor on board, even though he also does critiques on other writers' work.
3; Publishers are a very picky bunch.
4; Agents, if you get the right one (or should that be write one) are fab. But be watchful that they are working with you. ( A tale to tell on another occasion.)
5; Waiting for the phone to ring, or an e-mail to come in about a particular project that Sy has high hopes for, is just as agonising for me, as it is him.
I have a couple of questions i still need answering- can anybody shed any light on the following please?
1; Why do writers continually look out of the window?
2; Where do they hide their pens? There are never any when they need one, even though you have put half a dozen on their desk an hour previously.
3; What are writers really thinking about when you are trying to talk to them about something?
And one final really random question, that has been bugging me for some time.
Why is the 'living' television channel full of programmes about the dead?
Till next time,
