I haven’t posted for a little while because I’ve been feeling like shit. The three ideas I offered to the BBC have all been rejected. But it’s not just a quick ‘no’ – it’s been a lot of to-ing and fro-ing and ‘possiblies’ and now ‘NO’. I offered something on the back of a series I wrote last year. I’ve been working on it for a long time and did that thing of twisting myself inside out to give them what I thought they wanted. And it has been rejected on what feels like a whim. Along with two other things that they wanted, then they didn’t want. I know it’s not the end of the world. But right now I really feel like it is.
It would be great if my hide had grown a little tougher. But it hasn’t. It’s like the past few months have been a total waste of time.
