"The course has instilled many new instincts in me, which now play a huge part in how I develop an idea. For instance, I now explore every dramatic possibility before settling on a plot, and put much more effort into making my characters as rounded as possible. I enjoyed having my short film script performed by actors… It's a cliche but writing really is re-writing. However, at the same time have confidence in yourself and try to strike a balance between what you believe is right for your work and the feedback you receive from others. This is quite difficult to achieve."
