Is It Really Happening?

I’m becoming Daisy Steiner. For those who aren’t familiar with the TV show “Spaced”, I have so many things to thank it for.  It was the first show I obsessed over, used to record all the adverts when they appeared, used to cut out all the newspaper clippings any time it appeared – I loved it.  I understood all the references and felt like it was talking to me on many levels, the story telling plus the acting was top notch.

After finishing college there must have been about 2-3 years where I didn’t do anything other than work in stop-gap type work.  Then I decided to go to Uni.  Having a good hard think about what to do, writing in a professional environment made sense, so I went and applied to the nearest campus and got in.  The next bit I have only ever told my husband but a massive motivation for wanting to script write for film and TV was in fact “Spaced”.  I have so much to thank it for, I met my husband on the exact same course and we have been together for over 10 years – the rest they say is history.

I think it dawned on me last night that I’m slowly becoming Daisy, spooky eh?

I want to write but then spend hours in front of my bedroom window bogling to Aswad.  Just kidding!! When my children aren’t looking I like to have a full on twerk. Am I kidding now?



"I loved writing as a child, loved making up silly stories. They came built-in to my brain, almost like an Ikea instruction manual. The focus these days is to figure out how to now turn them into books" Tanya Butler, June 2018
