Can't believe it's a year today since I launched my screenwriting book, Write That Script in the Berlin bar (@BerlinBarD2Dublin). I remember far too much wine, some dancing, unbelievable conversations and the night went by in a whirl.
My mother always said time went faster as you got older. Of course, being young, I thought this was nonsense but boy was she right!

It's now in bookshops in Dublin and Galway and online; it led to a series of workshops at various writing and book festivals around Ireland: in Westport during the wonderful Rolling Sun Book Festival, in Carlow as part of Penfest and in Howth and Swords as part of the Write Time Festival, as well as a gig in Mary Immaculate College, Limerick. I’m currently teaching up at the @IrishWritersCentre and, later this year, I'll be talking at the Dublin Book Conference.
Write That Script is in libraries and colleges all over the country and beyond, which is amazing. It took me a year to write but a couple of decades of teaching screenwriting, as well as writing and developing material for the screen, to get the confidence to put it all on paper. So a huge thank you to all of you who supported and encouraged me, who bought my book and who turned up, regardless of weather, to hear me speak! #write that script www.lindsayjsedgwick.com
