Resolutions, resolutions, resolutions. So difficult to make, even harder to keep. This year, the most important resolution is to keep all the others. And here they are...
1. Inundate the BBC with story ideas for Doctors, so that they have no excuse for not giving me more commissions.
2. ... get at least three more commissions for Doctors over the course of the year.
3. Apply for (and be accepted into) the BBC Writers' Academy.
4. ... and, as a result, get at least one commission for Eastenders, Holby City or Casualty.
5. Get my radio play commissioned by BBC 4 for The Afternoon Play.
6. Get at least half a dozen TV series ideas to my agent, and have her hawk them around the industry.
7. ... and get at least one meeting out of the process.
8. Go to the Cheltenham Screenwriting Festival again.
9. If the Film Council ever get around to running another 25 Words or Less, apply for it and (this time) win the £10,000 (rather than just getting within sniffing distance*).
10. If the UKFC don't run the scheme again, work up at least one feature film concept, write the opening ten pages and get my agent to hawk it around (including to the Film Council).
11. Make some money from writing.
12. Have fun.
* It's a good job I wasn't blogging at the time when I got shortlisted. It was very frustrating, and I might have been tempted to say something very indiscreet.
