The beginning of a new month makes me stop (well okay… pause) and inhale with a new list of goals and writing deadlines, performances and sets to plan, it always feels like I can take on the world at the beginning of the month. Having said that I am supposed to be going to watch a performance of Pub Hamlet by Fortitude Theatre at the Old Stock Joint and Pub & Theatre – which has a wonderful performance space/club room at the top.
Comedy Night at OJS is compared by Aaron Twitchen. Headline Act: Will Franken.
It’s FREE, however the capacity is limited so get there early to avoid disappointment.
If you are in Birmingham or at a loose end… GO! It is sure to be brilliant.
I am just too tired after a weekend of hitting submission deadlines, 2 nights performing at Worcester Music Festival and with a drive to Ludlow in the week and another one to Stafford, as well as the possibility of work starting this week, I am trying to be sensible (which is most out of character).
Today so far I have reviewed August here on the blog and sent business emails. I have to collate my expenses for the Writing West Midlands Assistant Writer job, the new term kicks in in a fortnight and there are new and exciting developments there too. I will blog about that when I am allowed to (confidentiality and all that)!
I have a long list of opportunities to get written/scheduled up in my already full writing diary, I have 2 sets of poetry to practise for performances this week, about 5 things to research and some tickets to book *BLF* Birmingham Literature Festival, just around the corner in October.
I AM LOVING the fact that term started today and I am NOT yet back at school – so far this year on my -to pay the mortgage mission- I have a regular half day each week, hoping, like last year there will be some other schools that opt to have regular supply, until then I will write whilst waiting for the phone to ring. I managed to survive the summer with no income but now need to build the savings pool back up, plus I have my younger brother’s wedding and Christmas to think about!
LOVING today though – a full on writing day – a stop and have a coffee day – a ‘I made the RIGHT decision day’ – a thank God I jumped the leap of faith day…
