Neurodelicious debut

So, it’s the day before. Rehearsal without tech has made me feel nervous as my sound was great over one PA system and not so much yesterday. I looked at the soundboard though and have been reassured it will be fine when the techs set it up. So I have imposter syndrome today. Do theyContinue reading “Neurodelicious debut”

Neurodelicious launchpad: Pioneering a new type of entertainment accessible to all!

I’m not only performing two of my poems, Tourist to the Sun, and Masking, I am also singing and dancing as Kate Bush!

The Camera Obscure: writing the stories story 7, Eternal Recurrence.

This story is the strangest and perhaps darkest of all. I wrote it first, a long time ago, although I have edited a lot since then. The title’s premise is a theory by the Greeks, and adopted by Nietzsche, that the universe is continually recurring and will continue to do so.; life is cyclical, goodContinue reading “The Camera Obscure: writing the stories story 7, Eternal Recurrence.”

Writing my book, The Camera Obscure:Story 6 A Gallery of Tigers.

This story is a really strange one, but one I am proud of. It is a magical realist story, but it is really about abuse. The child, William, is treated very badly by his father and to escape him he finds himself disappearing into a painting and transforming. There are a lot of dark issuesContinue reading “Writing my book, The Camera Obscure:Story 6 A Gallery of Tigers.”

Writing my book, The Camera Obscure: story 5, The Sound of the Bell.

‘It was nearly 2am. Barker had arranged to meet Hill in this god-forsaken place upon the hour. He shuddered, but it was not due to the inclement weather, although the night was indeed a fearful one; thunder rumbled in the distance, intermittent flashes of lightning illuminating the sky in bursts and Barker was soaked toContinue reading “Writing my book, The Camera Obscure: story 5, The Sound of the Bell.”

Writing my book: Story 4 The Locked Door.

‘There was something odd about the rose bushes, Eleanor could not put her finger on it, but they seemed to have bloomed out of season, and were brighter and more colourful than they should be. Perhaps she had some sort of power over them, to make them bloom more beautifully at her will?’ This storyContinue reading “Writing my book: Story 4 The Locked Door.”

Writing The Camera Obscure- Story 3 ‘Reflection’

‘Here today, staring at my reflection again, I barely recognise myself. As ever, I am completely absorbed, drawn in to inspect every detail. My sense of self is disappearing as the face reflected back seems unfamiliar, as if there are two of us, the one here outside the mirror and the one on the otherContinue reading “Writing The Camera Obscure- Story 3 ‘Reflection’”
