The Day I Quit Writing.

A message from my best friend’s older sister, after I’d thanked her for praying for/with me in church on December 27th 2015, the day before I decided to quit writing.
  • My short film Closure was accepted into festivals, including a BAFTA Cymru-qualifying festival.
  • That feature film I wrote for my final year project that I really believed in, Hiraeth, was optioned by an independent producer.
  • And the play I wrote for my other final year project, Seeking Serenity, will hopefully be staged in 2017.
  • I was long-listed for the Papatango New Writing Prize and The Old Vic 12 for two different plays.
  • Creative Blue Balls is now a team of three, with huge plans for 2017.
  • Through all of the above, more doors have opened, the network has grown and relationships continue to be maintained and nurtured.
  • And then there’s the other stuff I’ve been writing, as well as the positive stuff that I can’t talk about.
  • And the bits that I’ve forgotten but will remember moments after I inevitably publish this.
