For the last three and a half years I’ve been blogging my own personal journey through a life-saving transplant over at SmileThroughIt.com – it’s been a true rollercoaster covering everything from life on the list to this post, at my lowest point when I honestly didn’t think I’d see Christmas 2007, through the transplant that not only saved but transformed my life.

Now, however, I feel that it’s time to move on.  I’m emerging into a world of professional writing and filmmaking and I need a blog that sells my talents to the wider world in a way that’s not focused on the day-to-day minutiae of a life that’s far more normal (and therefore less interesting) than the previous struggles I faced.

So this is is: olilewington.co.uk – a place for me to talk about what I’m up to and to broach topics related to my various projects, from revolutions in the indie film industry to tips on how to achieve more with your writing.  As I sit to write this, I’ve no idea really what kind of animal this blog is likely to become, but I’m open to and excited by the possibilities.

In the words of a friend, filmmaker and all-round guru: “Onwards and Upwards!”
