Scottish Lads Take Prostitutes To The Caledonian Hotel

I want to be that cool girl who sits in a café all day, spiking on coffee and rattling off pages and pages of unbelievable scriptage, but...

...it's just, I have a big comfy chair in my office at home. And my iGroove. And no annoying half-fat-extra-hot-double-double- dry-with-an-extra-shot ordering ninnies interrupting my train of thought. I sat in Groundworks on Sunset yesterday for three hours and got. Nothing. Done. The only thing I got out of it was a sore gluteus maximus and an aching trapezius from their extremely non-writer-friendly chairs.

Speaking of which I found a double badass online resource that's a total lifesaver when writing medical or forensic jargon. It's The Visual Dictionary - like Wikipedia but with pictures, and a little more authority, I think.

Slacker excuses
Got my screeners for my AFI FEST articles today. Lots of movies to watch. But Mom, I wanna watch TV!

And if this is Dorset, I must be a wurzel. As a fellow aspiring screenwriter, would you want to join my Cliq?

CLIQ is an interesting idea to create a "band of blogs" that share content with each other through a blog widget that highlights recent/popular posts from blogs that belong to the cliq.

If you look at my tripos.typepad.com/screenwrite blog you'll see the Cliq widget on the right hand side. It's only displaying one post because I'm the only current member of the cliq but if you joined it would show one or more of your posts too (obviously the widget would show my post on your site).

I think it's quite an interesting approach for sharing content and driving traffic between blogs. If you want to join the screenwrite! cliq I set up, here is the invite message:

Hello from CLIQ,

A friend of yours, scriptviz, has created a new CLIQ called "Screenwrite!" and has invited you to join.

You can check it out and sign up your blog at http://www.cliqin.com/accounts/join?tribe_id=172&token=hvgUtY52un

CLIQ is a widget-based content-sharing network that lets bloggers 'join forces' with friendly blogs to promote their posts and increase their collective readership. You can read all about it at www.cliqin.com.

Does this mean I have to add yet another module to my blog? Cuz, though it sounds like a cool idea, having been an information architect in a past life, I'm very against overcrowding over there!
