Huzzah!  I've just heard the suuuuuuuuper exciting news that the new series of Gigglebiz- the series that I worked on earlier this year - premieres on the CBeebies channel this Monday (21st) at 5.20! Again, huzzah!

Sadly, my time on  Gigglebiz has come to an end.  The writing for the new series - series 3 – is done and dusted.  It’s now on its jolly old way into production.

It’s been a truly fab and groovy gig, writing for some of my favourite characters, as well as writing material for some really funny new ones.  That said, I’m not sure if I can say who these new characters are, so…erm…I’ll just step away  from this part of the post…

The new series is due on air sometime late Summer…maybe. Perhaps early Autumn.  The truth is, I don’t know; they haven’t told me.  I’m just guessing.  As soon as I'm told, I'll let you know.

Getting lost is frustrating, especially when using a satnav. Or rather, MY satnav.

I got lost again recently; literally, in fact. The feature I'm writing was giving me headaches  (true, I also got lost during a truly awful journey to BBC Salford last week. It was a fresh slice of Hell I didn't particularly need.  Seriously, whichever ‘genius’ thought moving the BBC to Manchester was a good idea, really does need a high-five. In the face. With a chair).

So my problem was my third act was light, and although this is completely normal during a first draft, it was giving me sleepless nights.  Thankfully, unlike my stupid satnav last week which was about as helpful as a bowl of fruit, a great article by my chum Jeffrey Scott came to my rescue. Huzzah!

Jeff’s article also includes a wonderful quote from the legendary Irving Thalberg. (I now have that quote framed on my wall).

So the feature is back on track, the third act is filling up nicely and my World makes sense again.

Deep breath, and relax...
