Absolutely fantastic advice as always Pete! I am really liking the positive approach you give towards the end about getting work noticed. In the writing industry staying positive is de rigueur - it's that or go under.

Thanks, David.

The whole market for screenwriters is frankly very different to that for prose writers, and it would be interesting to discuss this in a forthcoming Village Hall.

Great piece of advice; right to be direct. Optimism is great until it borders on cloud cuckoo land. So all my stage prompts of 'add visual humour' won't work? Blow. Script to book re-write is next project. Should be fun though.
