Thanks for visiting my site.
I write screenplays, plays and fiction. I recently realised that hiding away, tapping away furiously on a keyboard every spare minute doesn’t ‘get you out in the world’ much. It’s got me to my desk, to the library and to numerous cafés a lot though, to be fair.
So I decided to start this blog, so I can engage with other writers, and anyone else who may be interested, or who wants to get in touch.
As well as writing screenplays (mainly), I’ve recently been commissioned to write a libretto by an opera company, which is a completely new departure for me. I’ll blog about my progress on this, other projects I’m working on, what I’ve recently seen or read, and any other random writing-related bits that cross my path. I may occasionally go off-piste, but will try my hardest not to regale you with too many misadventures from my ‘love life’, or anything else grisly and upsetting.
I’m a long-standing member of the London Writers’ Circle – a workshop group for writers, which has been invaluable for my writing – giving me deadlines, in-depth feedback, brainstorming support from other writers.
I write as TR Guest as another writer has rather thoughtlessly (IMHO) been given the same birth name as me. No, it’s not an attempt to emulate a JK Rowling-level of ‘initials only’ success. How dare you.
If you want to get in touch for any reason, please do.
