London-based writer

I'm Andrew, a 30 something aspiring writer, amateur actor and full-time advertising guy who lives in London with a cat. I've been on Livejournal for years now, and my original bunch of real-life friends who read my LJ have gradually drifted away.

My journal tends to be a mix of whatever's on my mind and burbling about my writing and acting. I try and keep it upbeat for the most part, I don't think anyone's really interested in reading angsty whinging from a 30 something straight, white, middle-class male. In the last two years, I've been doing am dram (or community theatre, as the more precious members of the company like to call it) out in Barnes, and I'm lucky enough to work with a few retired professionals. Some of whom you might have heard of, if you're into the same geeky things as me. So that's become the focus of quite a few of my posts, as it takes up two or three days a week of my life.

For the record, I'm a Doctor Who fan, along with the usual array of things that many Doctor Who fans are into, including Red Dwarf, Spaced, Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy and many more.

I'm also an avid theatre-goer and fluent French speaker, which generally tends to dilute the sci-fi nerdiness of my journal. My writing has consisted of fan fiction, non-fiction freelance articles, novel translations, short stories and attempts at original novels. My most recent article was for Helium, on the Twitter CEO's assertion that Twitter is saving live TV.  The day before yesterday, I wrote a 250 word flash fiction piece about killer robots for a contest. I'm never quite sure what I'll be writing next, as I never know when someone's going to be nice enough to pay me to write something.

I'm looking for friends of all genders, ages, orientations and countries, really. I'm interested in reading the journals of anyone who's interested in reading mine. But do let me know if you add me, as I can be a bit rubbish at noticing a new friend on the list unless they announce themselves in a comment of some kind!
