At the weekend, I was made aware of a script-writing competition, just two days in advance of the submission deadline. I knew I wouldn’t be able to complete anything worthwhile in that time, but my goodness, it gave me something to focus on.

For a while I thought maybe there was a chance. I quickly got to grips with the format required: I wrote a script for a sitcom once before for a competition, but that was about 15 years ago.  It comes back though. Over three to four hours on Sunday, a script bumbled along nicely, looking pretty professional on my laptop.

I didn’t submit anything. In the end, the bumbling was fine but I couldn’t get to the conclusion in any satisfactory way. It has, however, given me some ideas, and in these confined times, what better than to have a script on the go?
