thanks! yes, I did write one. Hadn't a clue--I was taking a writer's workshop class--and the teacher, Clive Hopwood, something of a playwright himself kept encouraging me--so I wound up writing on (wait for it) for the BBC! they were offering a prize--didn't get the prize but they said they liked it. I found I loved writing dialogue in particular. then I did another contest--to get a place at Lancaster U.--it was something that North West playwrights sponsered. I got one! and it was fun for awhile--but I prefer novel writing--it's easier to do--you're in your own home, you don;t have to kiss up to theater folk, you know?
if you like radio--go to the BBC radio website. Radio Four in particular! and choose anything you want. Play of the week, the day and so on.
I think you'd like it.
sorry this is so long. it's lovely meeting you too!
Good luck with your work!
keep me posted, please!
all the best!
