The Set Up.
As always with a new venture I was both looking forward to and slightly apprehensive about the first session of my screen writing workshops at Sheffield Live on Thursday. Will anyone turn up? If they did would they be able to get into the building (something I have wrestled with myself several times)? Would I forget everything I had ever known!? As people began to arrive the process of meeting and greeting, checking each other out, forming opinions through clues, age, gender, dress, body language, all of us waiting to be surprised, to learn more- to be curious is already the opening to a rich narrative. I relax. It’s going to be fine, there is so much potential, just through noticing who walks into a room, asking what might happen, and what story they have to tell. I am looking forward to the next chapter.
