Good news for girls

hope for girlsWith all the doom and gloom around, there must be enormous hope and inspiration for girls at the sight of this picture of two of our leaders  – both women.

UK Prime Minister Teresa May and Scotland First Minister Nicola Sturgeon.

And this is now nothing unusual!  That’s got to be good.

An interesting TED talk by Rachel Botsman on ‘reputational capital’, how it will become as important, if not more important, than traditional capital, and how it will change the way that we live and work.  The talk is from 2012 but still very relevant today.

Doctor Who: The Writer’s Tale: The Final Chapter (BBC Digital, 2013)

The Writers TaleThis is a series of emails between Russel T Davies and Ben Cook during the last two years of Russel’s writing for Doctor Who.  It is extraordinary in that it shows exactly what it takes to create those wonderful scripts he wrote.

But although I am not a TV fantasy script writer – I recognised the process.  I too have a ‘maybe’. I procrastinate and then write like the clappers.  The book is about, not just the creative process for writing TV scripts, but the creative process itself.  At least when it involves writing.

A fascinating read for everyone who writes with sincerity and passion.
