Recently I was working on a short ghost story; outline was complete and I was ready to start the first draft. I then heard about an opportunity, the only snag was it needed a whole new piece as a sample that had to be a script. I had nothing to hand so what was I to do as I don’t like to turn down an opportunity?
The answer, which I am sure you have spotted, was to reset the purpose of my outline and turn that into a script. I can then go back and produce the short-story later. One idea turns into two pieces of work. That’s the kind of mathematics I like!
Have you any similar experiences?
