Just like the prodigal son, I’ve returned. After almost a year away from blogging, I thought I better give the ole girl an update. Mainly because I’ve been sending my CV out with links to the website, and an out of date website is not a good look. But you know what is a good look for me? Literally everything else. I am still so hot.
I have spent the majority of the past year completely alone. Single, live alone, furloughed, no family nearby. So aye, not the best year. But I have been doing a bit more writing! Well, trying to. I have been working on turning my fantastic one woman show “Don’t Talk To Me About Love” into a comedy drama series. And it’s getting there. Not as quickly as I’d like it to, but it’s getting there.
One of the things that was giving me the ole writers block was that my attitude to love just keeps on changing. I really don’t know how I feel about it anymore. Does it exist? Does it just not exist for me? Is love stupid and a waste of time, or is the best thing ever and full of excitement? I don’t really know. And so, it was hard for me to take a stance on what the protagonist’s point of view is. What is her goal? But then… the protagonist is a fictionalised version of myself (still hot), so then maybe fake Judy should also be going through all this, but then is that an unclear motive and a confusing character? What is this show all about?! Should I try and separate myself from her, change her name? What about the BDP- play it up or tone it down?
There’s been a lot of doubt and questioning myself over this script, and with everything else going on in the world, it’s been hard to focus. But I am slowly and surely getting through this writers block, and boy oh boy, my script so far is banging. See for yourself:
I’ve also applied to take the stage show back to the Edinburgh Fringe this year, so fingers crossed that happens. I love being on stage.
What was the point in this blog? Oh yeah, to update my page, show I’m still alive and working on stuff. Hello! I will try harder to stay up to date. But if not, don’t worry:
I will always be hot.

I think not knowing is so beautiful.
Intriguing snippet. Have you planned a read through, might help if you got writers block? Lots of wannabe actors looking for experience who’ll usually do it for free just to be listened to for an hour. Helped me develop a script I was working on.
You’re Amazing !
