Performance this Friday!

2 Sep

OK, so we’ve established by now that my plan to make blogging the last thing I do on a Friday isn’t quite working, as what time I actually finish varies greatly from what time I plan to finish, so here we are on Monday night!

Had a few withdrawal symptoms this weekend because there was no more Edinburgh Book Festival to go to, and I have to say that will Sky Arts showing the Hay Sessions (and some of the other festivals) are a good second, they do pale beside the real thing. I’ve still got a few to watch from the last round, but ER always seems to take priority. I think that’s a sign that I’m not as interested in the writers who languish on my planner as I was on the ones I watched straight away.

Anyway, talking of writers performing, it’s going to be me this Friday night at Tchai Ovna, 42 Otago Lane, Glasgow, G12 8PB (for those of you with sat nav and a free Friday). The performances will be from 8 – 10pm and I’m looking forward to trying out my new performance skills, since I attended a workshop with Bridget McCann a few weeks ago.

Along with a little bit of rehearsal (more this week), I also submitted to New Writing Scotland http://www.arts.gla.ac.uk/scotlit/asls/NWSsubs.html which is pretty impressive as I normally hit the last post on that one. This year I’m a whole month within the deadline.

Also found out that I got a place on the Pitch Live event http://www.nawe.co.uk/DB/events/nawe-present-pitch-live-a-masterclass-for-scotlands-emerging-novelists.html in a couple of weeks – back to Edinburgh I go.

I make nice frocks and write average poetry. And there's a bit of embroidery and the occasional rant.
