By Cbevan_|November 10, 2017|Blog, writing progress

My last blog post was about refocusing my plans for a book I had started in 2010 called The Return of Pandora. I rather ambitiously decided that I was going to try and recreate Nanowrimo in February and write 70,000 words in 20 days. Yeah… that didn’t go to plan.

Too much of a perfectionist….

By Cbevan_|September 3, 2015|Blog, MA Scriptwriting

3 Am and I’m still sat here…. …tweaking Coping Ugly while my eye swells up thanks to some unknown allergic reaction. I’ve begrudgingly accepted that I won’t be able to submit the perfect draft of Coping Ugly. It won’t be stageable. There’s at least another 10 drafts, a character death
