Falmouth – phew!

Do you write scripts? If so, you might like to enter this competition and be in with a chance of winning the £6,000 prize. It's free to enter and open to all writers aged 16 or over. The competition is funded by Falmouth University, which is handy as I've been to Falmouth and would otherwise have been stumped when it came to finding an illustration which is in any way appropriate.

I've never attempted writing a play, and doubt I ever will, but I have started a murder mystery story, set partly in the grounds of Pendennis castle ... in Falmouth.

Are there any forms or genres of writing that you've not tried? If so, is that just because you've not got around to them yet, or because you feel they're not for you.

I know someone who writes play!

I used to be an amateur dramatics group for years, but I've only written half a children's musical (many years ago) and one play. I might know about scripts, but I have zero imagination when it comes to thinking up a scenario. :)

I do too – but they've not convinced me to try.

I can see that's something of a disadvantage!

I've been thinking of giving scripts a go. I've been studying popular series on the tube, analyzing the number of scenes, how many characters.... Maybe

I'd have to study how to write scripts! I don't have a clue! And no time to learn, unfortunately.

If you fancy the idea, why not give it a go, Mac?

Each form of writing has its own rules – and it does take time to learn them.
