Soap

It sometimes happens, nights when I can belt through what I plan to write in one sitting. Tonight was one of those nights.

I’ve applied to write for an online radio soap opera. As part of this I was required to write a two scene piece featuring three characters, one of whom had to enter halfway through. It had to be set around a funeral. It was up to me if that meant before the funeral, during or after so I’ve ended up doing three pages about two middle aged women going to the funeral of a next door neighbour with one of them worried about her son being late and showing her up. The main thrust of the exercise seems to be to establish if you write dialogue well.

I’ve sent it off in the last hour, we’ll see how this one comes to pass.
