Hello everybody, came across this site yesterday and after reading up on several posts, I thought it maybe a place as good as any to ask for a bit of friendly advice. First off just quickly, a bit of info... I'm 34, married, I have no children as yet and I have a fairly decent 9 to 5 day job working in Administration. Taking this into consideration, here's where I need the advice... Ok here goes. I really really really want to get into scriptwriting for TV Drama. The trouble is, I have absolutely no experience whatsoever, I have no college/university degree and possibly most importantly...I have no story. This last fact concerns me greatly. I feel its telling me, quite obviously, that if I have nothing which I feel needs to be written then therefore I can't have any writing talent and if I havent got any writing talent then why do I aspire to become a scriptwriter? I should have gone onto further education when I was younger, I wish I had realised what I wanted to do when I was younger but I didnt and I regret that. Confidence is an issue as much as anything else but I am starting to wonder if I'm just wasting my time in hoping this could ever happen. Do you think I should I just take a reality check? Given the fact that I have never studied for it or been to university to gain a degree, should I just put it down to me living in dreamland and to just forget about it? Or should I go for it? What would you do? Feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Claire.
