I was browsing his website and thought I would share this piece of info with all the writing enthusiasts out there: Robert Mckee will be in London between the 12th to the 14th November for his three day seminar on "Story". Check it out for yourself on the link above. If it is anything like his book, it will be dynamic,inspiring and a very useful guide if you are serious about writing.

It has nearly been three weeks since I have left Portugal and started paediatrics...Needless to say I have been busy. First there were the crash courses, then the oncalls and then a case of mild flu. This weekend however I have made the most of it and put my feet up. I did make it out of the house yesterday...I actually bought a very good book by Robert McKee entitled "Story: substance, structure, style, and the principles of screenwriting". I have only read the first fifty pages however it is so far inspiring material. I will not comment any further on the basis of these early pages but it remains exciting reading. I also bought "The Writer's Handbook 2005" which should give me some direction, help me maintain the discipline. Especially as I work full time at the moment, I do most of my writing during whatever time I have spare. Perhaps one day I could make a living out of it, but for now I will thrive on the passion for my craft...
