You’re probably wondering what’s going on with ‘The Last Alive’. Maybe you’re not, maybe you truly couldn’t care less about the on off nature of the feature script that is currently in the works on my laptop. It’s still struggling on and not really going anywhere in the process. I’m now thinking I’ve came to this far too early and it needs further planning in order to proceed. The characters just seem a bit samey, the location is far too much of backwater Scotland and the intro sees nothing happen for ages and then everything happens in a few pages. Going forward now would be utterly stupid, it’ll have to wait.
In the meantime I’m thinking about writing another couple of shorts and also rewrite the synopsis for Seven Lucky Stars in a effort to get that relisted and possibly picked up. I’m going to fling some idea into the notebook for the shorts, maybe just a sentence for each and then take it from there. It’s probably going to be a way of breaking up the task of writing the feature and enables something to be going on in the background at the same time.
