The Blog Police

The Blog Police have been round. Apparently someone reported me for a breach of the public blogging order 2002 - Something to do with not updating it enough...

Yes, I know, it's been a while. I REALLY must update more often! The idea of a blog is to keep a record of your life. According to m
y blog, I've been dead for the last 22 days! That's almost a month!

So, from now on I'll endeavour to update more often. Even if I've done nothing exciting! I'll blog about what I had for tea (a nice p
rawn salad, as it goes) or whatever.

Right, so what have I been up to since we last didn't meet? Well, as everyone else has been doing (everyone that hasn't got a paid commission yet that is) I've been working on a script for the CBBC competition. They didn't give everyone a lot of time so I've had to pluck an idea that was floating around inside my cerebral store cupboard of despair and blast out a first draft. I
'm quite pleased with the concept, but it's a little complicated! Thankfully, I had Michelle on hand to give me an absolutely brilliant critique on it. She not only came up with some brilliant constructive comments but also gave me a few good ideas that I'm currently weaving into the re-write. All this and Michelle is actually starting a different CBBC script from scratch with a completely new story, so a virtual "Big Up!" goes out for taking the time out of her busy schedule!

Okay, so I'm doing the re-write at this very moment (well, not at THIS very moment! This blog isn't going to appear on CBBC anytime soon
!) I don't have much time at all, as I'm out all day (and night) on Saturday and next weekend I'm going to Wembley to watch AC/DC (Friday the 26th) and we're staying in London and making a day of it on Saturday. So, including tonight (which is almost over for me) I've got about 8 days in total to get it completely finished! GULP! And that's if I only leave an extra day for it to get there! I can just imagine the post being crap and it getting there a day late!! In fact, with this in mind, I'd hope to get it finished by next Thursday, so I can post it before I go to Wembley... Sorry? What's that at the back? "I could take it with me and hand post it myself?" Hmmmm, where is Grafton House?

So that's my main concern for the next week
and a bit. I may beg a day off work so I can spend a full 10 hours on it. I'll seriously have to beg though! I had to promise things I'd rather not talk about just to get the Friday off!

I've finally joined the ranks of Twitter! Yes, I've succumbed! I wondered what all the fuss was about until I actually took the plunge! I can see what I've been missing now! In between blog posts there are "tweets", so I can find out what TV's James Moran had for his tea! No, seriously, I didn't realise it was such a goldmine of information! What have I been missing!!!??? I
'm going to add a Twitter gadgety thing to my blog so you can see all of my tweets popping up. Don't expect many at the moment though, I'm still getting the hang of it and sourcing new ways to inform everyone that I'll be getting decidely drunk this Saturday night, while indulging in some Xbox 360 Rock Band action with my brothers (a sort of prelude to the concert next week - but you can't buy tickets to see us - unless you want them of course? In which case they're a fiver each...)

You might think that I'm a bit of a rocker,
but I'm not. I actually like a wide variety of music, ranging from Eminem to Kings of Leon, The Prodigy to The Beatles (incidently, there's a Beatles version of Rock Band coming out in September, how cool is that!?)So there you have it. My first post for a while! I *promise* I'll update more often from now on! If I don't you have my permission to spam the hell out of my Twitter box (if that's what you'd call it) using @Splinter073 many times...
