My Story from Twisted50 vol 2: The Monthly Meal

 

Favourite quote: ‘I'm hit girl’ - Kick Ass

 

Started an interest in screenwriting about 5 years ago preferring drama, horror and thrillers. Learning all the time having pitched two screenplays and other outline ideas at the London Screenwriters Festival. The Twisted 50 initiative has provided great inspiration leading to becoming a winner for Vol.1 & Vol.2.

Onwards and upwards!

But then would that different interpretation necessarily be a bad thing?

Inspiration for the story Flat Hunting by Gordon Slack

Some years ago I visited an elderly relative who had just moved to a smaller house.

"No", she responded and then said, with her wonderful (slightly wicked?) sense of humour, "Just one more, to my single floor flat". I looked confused to which she smiled and then crossed her arms over her chest.

 

That idea remained stored in my mind and as soon as the brilliant Twisted 50 initiative appeared, the idea rapidly surfaced.
