BBC Writersroom

The BBC Writers’ Room submission window opens tomorrow.  This window is concentrating on writing for CBBC or CBeebies.  Unlike some of the writers who post to their comment boards, I have no problem with the Writers’ Room concentrating on specific genres.  I have never considered myself a children’s writer.  A couple of weeks ago, when I out that the window was due to open shortly, I decided I should probably give it a go.  I opened one of my notebooks to try and develop an idea.  The first thing I found was a note I’d made a week earlier and then forgotten: the idea was for a children’s drama.  

I do keep notebooks (obviously), but I rarely find them that useful.  It’s nice to know that the system works occasionally.  I started the first draft yesterday and should get it finished before the window closes on 7th July.
