What's it all about?

Fast approaching 30 I've fallen in to teaching, a career though championed by many amongst my friends and family, I've tried desperately to avoid. Worse still I appear to have missed the heyday when students were keen and wages were plenty. Having left city-life behind to support my partner through a prolonged recovery from cancer, it's clear I've become isolated, not only from my old life, but from the future I hoped it would lead to...

There must be more to life than this..?

Forgive me if I refrain from revealing my cats true identitites, you'd be amazed at how rife catnapping in The North of England is... Do you see..? Do you see what I did there..?


This website is brilliant if you're looking for advice regarding your own writing, competitions, formatting your work, workshops, etc.
If you're patient they'll even read your scripts and other work too providing feedback. It's a great resource and well worth a peek.

Easily one of the most useful websites I've ever come across for aspiring writers. The advice it gives is clear, concise and extremely accurate. It's especially useful if you've already finished a piece of work and aren't sure what to do or where to go with it.

Again another useful website for aspiring writers who have yet to be published.

This is an annual competition for the Royal Exchange Theatre in Manchester, UK. Extremely prestigious and a great opportunity it's one not to be missed! Usually has a great panel of well known and experienced judges and I find a great motivation to write something to enter. Don't miss out - I believe this year the competition starts on January 31st (2011) and I believe it runs for several months - sadly it's only available to writers living in the UK & Ireland.
