Guest Post by Kate Donne

Three years at The Royal Conservatoire, Glasgow was the most inspirational experience of my life. I spent many hours studying character building and script writing and without that training I know I could never have written a novel. The course also taught me to ‘widen my focus’ and I became more aware of the characters around me. I began to think in pictures! I have never been a ‘practical’ person. I’ve always had a vivid imagination and when I write I can ‘see’ the situations playing out before my eyes! I was taught the art of bringing colourful characters to life. That inspired me and it seems to make sense that in the future I will adapt my trilogy into a full, three-act stage play. That is a very exciting prospect. Later this month I will be launching the complete trilogy and we have a half hour dramatisation rehearsed and ready to entertain our guests!
