It Was Bound To Happen

Step three in making a comb bindImage via Wikipedia
We've done it!  We've wrestled and wrangled, cajoled and calluded, judged and juggled, messed-about and mused and finally both agree that the pilot and all related materials are fit to send off.  It has a covering letter, the pilot script itself and a summary of plots for the rest of season one.  Research has told us that the BBC prefer the script to be loosely bound using a bulldog clip or similar.  So if you were thinking of using a curly-wurly spine with transparent covers then I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

Being allergic to waiting, the following few weeks will no doubt prove to be torturous.  At least I can return to my Plan B script (providing we don't lose all electricity to the house again), which is about halfway written.

That said, I'm proud that we've got to this stage.  It is the first step for us becoming experienced (not necessarily successful) sitcom script writers.  Now we are at the mercy of fate, fortune and faith in whoever's desk it lands on.

Watch this space.
