My journey as a scriptwriter mirrors the plot structure of a good thriller script, which is apt as Thrillers are my go to genre.

My inciting incident was an unexpected job loss that lead to my first ever competition submission, in the 2009 British Feature Screenplay competition. I was seeking validation, but got so much more when my script got to the Quarter Final, the final 50 from over 6000.

My journey had begun. After a delve into the usual suspects of screenwriting books I decided to heighten the stakes of my story and invest financially in taking my writing from a hobby towards a professional career. After two rather intense screenwriting courses and a few thousand dollars my writing had improved significantly, as had my awareness that my goals was not as simple as I’d first thought.

Like all writers I started to doubt whether I had what it takes to be a professional writer. I’d had validation of sorts with consistent Considers on script coverage, but I seemed to be lacking that thing that takes a script from good to great.

Rather than quitting, I sought help from Dominic Morgan, aka Scriptfella, whose experience and insight was exactly what I needed to up my game. I’m confident now that I am capable of writing professional, quality scripts, I just needed to find somewhere to promote my scripts and my writing, and I feel that Script Revolution is that place.
