With abject apologies and all sorts of no good excuses I have to tell you that this is my first post for 3 whole months! It won’t do. So today I made a promise to gather lilacs, it’s Spring, and I’m springing my much neglected Blog back into life!
First up is Workhouse Players at Caistor Arts Centre Pudding Club tonight….Beryl will tell her tale in the story ‘Argentine Tango’. We are booked for two Festivals on the week-end of spring bank holiday, and then in July. Details on www.facebook.com/workhouseplayers. A new story ‘Treacle Tart’ is currently in rehearsal.
Secondly is the question of what I’ve been doing all the time I haven’t kept up my blog, well folks, I’ve been writing, and this time not a short story, but possibly a novel. Big deep breath! I’ve written over 40,000 words for the first draft – which for me is something of a miracle! I have managed to avoid reading over what I’ve written, and just write! Will keep you posted.
I would love to know what books you are reading, or have read this year, and which really grabbed you? I’ve got a few, but I’ll wait to hear from you first………
Congrats to my poet friend Terry Quinn, who has just won a prize for his poem ‘Blessings’ which will be displayed on public transport in Guernsey in May this year. Wonder where Terry is going for his hols?
That’s it for now, look forward to your book comments……..
