A WINE GLASS
|Monster Wine Glass!|
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DAVE
|That's me, in Holywell Dene|
WRITE ON:It's all happening for me AGAIN on the writing front, folks. I received some information about a course on writing stage plays. It looks brilliant. Doesn't start until next May. Hope it doesn't get in the way of the forthcoming OLYMPICS. I'm going to apply, though - and hope I get accepted.
There's another course - a Creative Writing Workshop via Tyne Met College - starting September that I'm considering. Having given up my writing courses, I'm beginning to miss the company of the writing fraternity (notwithstanding the excellent support I get for writers online, of course: not to mention my dear writing buddy, Fleur, in SA.
...And then...I've been getting organised, dear readers and made a start on getting my first novel underway - PROPERLY...AT LAST!! It's called 'Lavender Cat', a story for young adults. Wish me luck - keep your fingers well and truly XX'd for me, won't you?
Over the last week or so, I've published an article for Purple Slinky online:
Swan-ee, How I Love Ya!
and a feature on my North east Life blog/column:
|All Fall Down in Windermere!|
Just the Ticket – A Walker’s Paradise on Windermere Lake
|Time to have Fun at the Tyne Bar!|
...and... there's more (!!!) ... I've been invited to write the jacket of the fabulous BONESHAKERS blues band's forthcoming
11-track CD. I'll keep you posted on that too.
|Startling Stock Ghyll Force|
"What a name!" I hear you say. I did too. However, I checked them out, applied and got accepted to write for them. I've written two features for them up to now. Here they are:
|Parc Guell in Barcelona|
|Boneshakers Blues it at the Sand Dancer Pub|
The Land of the Sand Dancer
I hope you enjoy them. In the meantime, I must get back to this novel of mine.
Go and have fun, dear readers. And may all your dreams come TRUE.
