Writing for HHTV (Hip Hop TV) was the first time I’d written screenplays, and I enjoyed it immensely but knew that my skill set was pretty low level.
My local University had an open day and my youngest daughter convinced me to visit, I chatted to the course leader for the Screenwriting degree.
She looked at the sample scripts I’d taken with me (the HHTV ones) and at my published illustrator award book, and signed me up straight away with an unconditional offer.
I started my degree course three days later.
It took a while to recover from the shock.
