Back to the past
I have finished the first half of Lonely Emily, and moved on to rewriting one of my old plays which I never finished, and hit a ... er ... slight snag. I discovered the play - originally called The Man Himself and now renamed Dead Funny - was on floppy disk. This wonderful piece of 20th Century technology is now as redundant as a pencil - more so, you don't have to download a pencil - but luckily a friend of mine had a piece of kit that saved my bacon and got my play onto that lovely piece of 21 Century tech - a memory stick.
My advice, stick with a pencil - and keep your fingers crossed that pencil sharpeners never become redundant. Tony
