Why is it that posting about your idea on Facebook so scary? I mean if you are working on someone else’s project, grand. If you are advertising on any other site, grand. Its just that fear of all the people you know seeing it that makes it so hideous.
But I have decided not to be a worraz about it.
I have started by dipping my toe in slowly and posting on these groups
Conspiring and Inspiring for a better future (very like me so less daunting) . Shortly after I got one response off a writer called Mary who says she interested in working on this she is based in bath but we will see what she says.
London (BAME) Women Writers’ Group , The founders also came back to me almost straight away with some interesting ideas of funding
As they are quite busy I am going on meet them on 6th June to discuss this further.
People are so nice. It immediately makes you feel like what the fuck was I worrying about?
I booked the board room at The Collective (The Collective is my shared office space that I go to after 9 – 5 hours to work on my projects. Its nice as there are loads of other start ups there in the same boat)..to hold a writing collab workshop there on 31st May. It will be about the idea and how to create a dialogue for a short film piece. For example it will be something along the lines of the new Vicks campaign (which I am in love with)but on ‘Surgery Slave’ theme and in terms of length and style but it will have the challenge of having to be filmed at the venue( one room) during the event.
I have no idea what the context of the workshop will be but Aine(my mam) said she will help me work on a structure for this on Thursday before Sangha.
Ball rolling… 🙂
