I'm feeling better about this project. I'm really into the flow now, and am over halfway there. More writing tonight, then once finished, tidy up and chip away at unnecessary evils.
Writing for children isn't as easy as it sounds. You have to first of all think about the budget, amount of lines children can cope with, fitting adult scenes in to break it all up, speak from a child's point of view, have plenty of action and less dialogue. Yes, it's not at all easy, but then, if it was, we wouldn't need to work on our scripts like we do, and really, that's half the fun, or angst, whichever way you look at it. Bit of both for me, actually.
I read some useful info from fellow Bloggers about the CBBC Q & A session held recently in London, so here are the links to those posts & those brilliant Blogs:
