Empty nest writer

It’s hard to let your baby go … and after nearly six years I now have nothing to do with my film script. My first born is in the hands of the Director. Good hands to be in … but it’s so hard! I can’t quite believe there will be no more tweaks, no more rewrites. That’s it!

What I do have is excellent producers who send me pictures on set, so I can stay in touch. And … the papers. Fortunately for me they’re camped outside with long lenses and I can enjoy seeing costumes and outdoor sets along with the rest of the public. So grieving becomes excitement: I’m so proud of her as she goes out into the big wide world. #TheColourRoom #Stokeontrent #birmingham
