Some Thoughts on Writing

Don’t know how much use this’ll be, but I thought I’d start putting down (up?) my thoughts on the writing process.

This is where ideas go. Before they go wrong.

Everyone has their own process. Mine changes all the time. This won’t be a “how to” but rather an amble through the various things I do to get from blank page to polished script.  Yes there are “rules” I follow. Rules get me over hurdles. Once I’m over the hurdle, I’m free to break them. But they’re also like the teacher that stands over you and says, “You’re doing it wrong”. Annoying, but the sooner you realise they’re right, the easier your life becomes.

As David Ogilvy famously said: “Give me the freedom of a tight brief”

So here we go, in no particular order, this is how I work…

Or at least how I’m working now…
