What I can and can’t say

As this is not a political blog, I have already excised my first paragraph about this person.

Moving along…I am sure you are too high-minded to be fans of Neighbours (except for one of my sisters, who never comments on my blog anyway) so I can’t ask you why the three males in the Turner family all have such weird hairstyles. All different, but all really weird, and not in a good way.

You may be fans of The Archers, so I can share this joke about Rob Titchener’s past that I found on Twitter – posted by @lomelindi12.

And I can tell you that the more I read my screenwriting books…


…and think about adapting BUT I TOLD YOU LAST YEAR THAT I LOVED YOU, the more I understand the constraints on screenwriters when they adapt books for the screen. The problem I am wrestling with at the moment is that there is not enough room for all the minor characters and subplots, so I am trying to decide which to drop and which to keep…Jem, for example, may be for the chop.
