First vlog/blog posts are always awkward, I find. Bare with me rambling on.
Hi I’m Froshie and this is my blog to go with my vlog which is all about creative writing. Screenwriting in particular! As you will see in the ‘About Me’ section of my page I have started this particular blog up in order to help document my processes for the last stage of my Masters degree: A screenwriting portfolio.
For this I am writing:
One feature: Our Perennials (WT) – Marigold spends her days gardening for a sweet old couple, Lavender and Garnet, and her evenings taking care of her sister. When Lavender’s terminal illness takes a turn for the worst, Marigold has to deal with Andrew, Lavender’s fat, lazy, grumpy son who moves in to ‘help’ his dad. When her alcoholic mother returns from the dead, her family secrets become harder to hide from her employers, but they have secrets of their own.
Short #1: If A Tree Falls (WT) – A young girl makes a den in the woods and using some of her mums ashes in an attempt to grow an oak tree, but when a group of older kids discover her den, they have other idea’s.
Short #2: Fog, A Dog, And A Skippers Log (WT) – Robert and his little dog take his best friends ashes for one last fishing trip, but when danger strikes, can he learn to let go?
I am also writing an essay hence this blog. It makes life much easier when it comes to writing it when I have a whole back log of daily (I’m thinking optimistically here) blog posts to reflect on.
I am also doing the ‘Story for Screen’ online course by John Yorke. And this week we are learning how to write précis’. Week two and already it’s really helping – and I’m not just saying that, I’m normally not very good with these sort of structured writing things but it is helping me to think more deeply about my own work before I get to the actual writing. Which I need to do, especially now that the treatments and character bio’s are finished. I should probably email them to my tutor, actually.
Anyway I am going to have dinner because I don’t think there is anything else to say today.
Don’t tread on the flowers,
