The London Screenwriter's Festival 2010 kicks off on Friday and I'll be preparing myself over the next few days ready for three days of intense networking. But how do I strike a balance between all the talks I want to be at and networking? To figure this out I had to decide what was most important to me, meeting up with friends, listening to speakers, or networking my arse off trying to get an agent and get producers interested in my work?

To make the best use of my time and money I have decided to concentrate on the latter. Finding producers to buy my work and getting an agent to help me with getting more work is my priority and everything else comes second to that. I need to make a success of my career and myself, and start making a living from writing.

I will attend a few talks, and I won't ignore my friends, but my main focus will be giving my career a damn good boost, after all producers and agents are coming to look for talented writers so I have to mercenary and make the most of the opportunities presented to me.

I will only get out of this weekend what I put into it over the next few days.
