‘Spare’ time.

Have I read the book? Yes, of course. I am not a royal watcher, fanatic or even much of a fan. I have to confess that when I took a tour through the crown jewels last year, I was slightly sickened as I had just walked past quite a few sleeping bags in shop doorways.Continue reading “‘Spare’ time.”

To the New Year!

So, I am back. Today is one of those days where I just ave no energy and want to spend it hunkered down indoors in a cosy hoodie. I juts spent 1 hour deleting old emails, and I still have 8000 to go. Any suggestions? I find this gives me an utter headache and IContinue reading “To the New Year!”

A modern fairy tale.

Feeling inspired. A little poem: A Modern Fairy Tale. Envy is a mean-eyed bitch; a talentless witch, who sits in her empty coven, cooking up futile spells  in her barren oven. Jealousy is her small-minded daughter; a shapeless lump, who sits hunched in her infertile cave, fingers poised with her poison pen; follows Envy toContinue reading “A modern fairy tale.”

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”

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.”
