New bookmarks purchased, with illustrations of book covers on, rather than my photo. While I was out I bought a display stand for the events that are coming up.I may not be writing but I shall be talking and (I hope) selling, in the next few months.My next task is to find some sketches for a spring event. I have looked on line and they just don’t seem funny. I think the secret may be to make them very local and topical but I will research Victoria Wood as she was very gifted that way. We want to mix music and words and give the takings to charity.I just hope my record player is loud enough for the hall next week as I am delivering a talk that includes recordings from the Voice of Progress. I’ll have a rehearsal as I do think having to use apparatus when public speaking is dodgy.
Wow! Panto almost ready for recording. Only one missing sound and three of us are working hard to find it. I had fun looking at all the sounds one can find on line. A completely new experience for me and I hope I don’t forget how to do it.
Then the final module of my radio drama course came with so much information I had to print it off. It may be useful soon as I am helping in a workshop next week and promised to tell everyone how I found it.
Writing Magazine sent a Christmas parcel which looks exciting. Somehow I have to get energised to be more creative. If I get started on a musical event for 2018 I may feel I am doing something worthwhile. Meanwhile I have ordered the new bookmarks and the poetry anthology is still selling well.
Perhaps I’ll try to take more pictures next year.
Our week in Sciathos was as good as anticipated, gorgeous weather, perfect hotel, right on the beach, delicious food and a chance to snorkel in the sea and swim in the pool. What more could anyone want? I read two novels and did a load of puzzles and we had a night out on the mainland after a ‘sunset’ cruise. I’ll put some more on later and make the photos stretch over a few posts.
August 10th is the publication date for our anthology “Reflections, Then and Now”
I took a rather poor picture of the cover on my phone.
A draft copy now in my possession. We had to add two more poems to fit the ‘four’ pages in a booklet but I had plenty in hand,
The cover looks great, with one of Joan’s cartoons on the front and the four of us on the back.
A fox in our drive at 8am in the morning. Watching out for our terrier?
Just read the wordpress tips. I have a photo I can try to drop and drag. Six starlings were splashing about in the bird bath. I had to take the photo from inside the kitchen.Did it the old way!It works OK.
