Head down

Busy just at the moment. Museum books on the go. Druid book on back burner. Short story completed (although it will need a bit of work as I tried to do something tricksy with tense and I'll need to think about how well that works). Health a bit dodgy.

On a different note, I was heartened the other day, however, by statements from two people. The first was an actor who said he was always drawn to parts by the writing. If the writing was no good, he wasn't interested because that was the basis of everything else. The other was a film critic who said he could not understand how a film could be nominated for an Oscar TM for best film unless the screenplay was also nominated. The implication being that at the core of any good film is a good script. Hurrah for those two people.
