events of note

I’ve been quiet because I’ve been busy. Plus there’s been another wedding.

It’s unlikely at this stage that I’m going to make the 50K goal of NaNoWriMo, but I don’t mind because it’s been a great focus and I’m happy with the work I’m developing.

I’ve not felt the urge to write anything in this blog of late. I’d rather do, than write about doing at the moment. Perhaps that will change in the future.

I noticed today on IFTN that the final shortlist for the RTÉ Filmbase Short Script Awards has been announced officially. My mate Alan Keane has made the grade with his script, Remote. Congratulations to Alan for a well-deserved placement in the top ten, and I wish him the best in the upcoming interview.

My alma mater, the Huston School of Film and Digital Media, is hosting the John Huston Centenary Conference from November 23rd-24th 2006. It’s an academic conference, but it includes screenings of two classic John Huston films: The African Queen, and The Dead. There should be something among the events to tempt the historian or the amateur film buff.

Back to writing.
