Rushed off my feet

Just time to say I'm completely unprepared for the Cheltenham Scriptwriters Festival which I'm off to tomorrow. I'll have to walk to the nearest station, which isn't too bad in current state of walking fitness.

But I haven't prepared all that I wanted. I shall have to make a list and just do them all.

However one thing that I have done, taking a leaf from the exhibitions I've previously attended, is to go through the delegate list and make a list of my own, of the people I want to talk to. Then I've either sent an e-mail when available, or done some rooting about the net to find their e-mail address, or as a last resort tried various combinations of first name, second name and domain until it didn't bounce back.

I can be very sneaky. Still, it means I get contact with specific individuals who are attending and hopefully may be interested in chatting.

I've already had one reply which was positive although it's a collaborative thing, which means no money until somebody makes some. But still, I kind of guessed that before I sent the e-mail so I'm not complaining. And some of the things they want match the kind of things I'd like to do.

I am planning to blog during the event. So stay tuned. One of the things I want to do is find a digital camera in this house that actually works with one of the computers (we have lots of both but last time we checked nothing wanted to talk to anything else).

Anyway, Supernatural is on so I shall waste another hour.

What's on the turntable? "I will survive" by Enrique Iglesias from "Escape".

Cool. And they managed to throw in some lil ole twists into the season finale. Thankfully it was renewed.
