Success

A dear friend of mine and fellow screenwriter co-wrote and co-produced a TV pilot/teaser for the Optus ONE80 PROJECT competition.

It was chosen as one of the top ten entries!!

Here it is, titled "Deadbeat Dads". I'm so proud and excited for Shelley and her team!!!

P.S. You can vote for it too!

Oh my! A post! I always drop in just in case you're 'home'. PS I love that you're a screenwriter, have I mentioned that?

How about a post to let us know what's brewing in your pot?

Eleanor:
You may remember me as Barrett Bonden (Blog: Works Well). Since then I became Lorenzo da Ponte (Blog: Tone Deaf). My novel, Gorgon Times, will shortly become available on Amazon/Kindle.

Below is the text of augmented Acknowledgements page. This comment saves you buying the book.

Thanks and cheers,

Gorgon Times
A working brief
The chances are you have a job; the chances are it isn’t the sort of job that figures in novels. Unless, of course, you're a policeman, an art gallery employee, an academic, or – Lord help us – a writer. Book jobs are a tight little world.

I believe we are defined by our jobs but since most of us don't chase rapists, moon about Lucian Freud, deconstruct Derrida or overcome authorial block we rarely see our lives mirrored in fiction. Gorgon Times was written with most of us in mind.

Gorgon Times was also written in parallel with a blog, Works Well, which attempted to enliven what I call technology. Works Well took the line that a gearbox, described intelligently, can match a Brancusi. Occasionally I posted details about my progress with the MS and several readers responded with encouragement and help.

I owe special thanks to:
