The Writer: Ba Kiwanuka

My writing career has spluttered on and off since my days in secondary school. However once I embraced the internet (I hail from Uganda, East Africa so this wasn't that way way back) it kicked into high gear. Originally I was writing for websites and blogs until one day a friend suggested that since I like movies so much why not write screenplays. The idea took root and I started writing scripts for people on freelancer sites. After I got a number of pretty good reviews from satisfied customers I thought to myself why not aim for the big leagues. Yup! That's a whole different ballgame and I'm still learning the ropes. But as they say writing is 90% rewriting and practice makes perfect so... Go to bio
