PhD Madness

The Beast. And many, many notes.
Do you see the date on that last post?! It's almost A YEAR AGO!! 

Crazy, I know. But work and the picture to the left is pretty much all I've been up to for the last few months!

From April 2012-June 2012 I traveled to 9 states to lecture, promote Wales, talk about film adaptation, and a slew of other fun facts, crazy work appointments and whatnot.

From June to September I was a total recluse writing the above. Literally. Did. Nothing. Else. Nothing.

September - January = 14 states, holiday in Spain, lectures, work, and beginning to study my thesis to prepare for my viva (the oral defense of the Beast... aka, PhD thesis).

And that basically brings us to here!

Things on my mind film wise: Les Miserables, The Hobbit, Jane Austen Celebrations (!!), Leaky Con 2013, and all sorts of new forays into film work, script editing, and writing a bit more for hypeable.com and pagetopremiere.com. It'll be a big year!

I'm revamping my website, studying The Beast and hanging my head in shame at the dumb mistakes (oh redonkulousness), working hard at my new job and loving it, and still fitting in as much film work as I can. For example, last week I was on a panel with executives from BBC, S4C, Film Agency Wales, and a producer from Apollo Productions. We listened to 8 professional writers pitch passion projects, examine their pitch documents, and provide feedback for them.

Anywho, more to come soon as I come back to life and re-immerse myself in all of this!
