I think I will have a go this time! It's just a case of deciding what to send, then how much work I need to do to get it up to a standard I'm happy with, how many motivational coffees needed to get me there in time, etc. etc. But yeah -do enjoy a challenge!

I noticed that fewer than one percent of entries to the Drama Writers Room got through the the final stage.

In spite of this, I've got an idea that I'm going to try and work up to 6000 words before the deadline.
I suppose word-count-wise it's the equivalent of 12 or so Newsjack sketches, and I managed to get two of them written each week, so it seems doable.

It's great fun reading the comments on the WritersRoom Page.
People are such f**king idiots.
The "choose your 10-pages" is a good call.
The nature of things means most of the entries will be pilots, so the first 10 pages are always a bloody nightmare.
