I Went To YALC — And Survived! (Mostly)

I Went To YALC — And Survived! (Mostly)

I promised myself I was going to blog about YALC immediately after I came back — that’s the Young Adult Literature Convention, for those who aren’t aware, which takes place in conjunction with London Film and Comic Con. However, I picked up some kind of stomach bug while I was there, and I was also so completely exhausted that I’ve spent the last couple of days doing as little as possible and hoping I feel better soon (that’s what the…

Trains And Tutus

Trains And Tutus

Time for a progress update! I’ve been home a grand total of, like, three days. In that time I’ve managed to raid the local library, drink far too many cups of tea, and have sleep patterns that vaguely approach normal, which is weird. While Monday was productive and relatively free of anxiety, Tuesday went downhill again, but I’m trying to reassure myself that the whole point of being at home is not having to be productive. But enough of that….

(Script Frenzy is also known as Screnzy). The aim is to write a 100-page script in the month of April. Apart from the fact it’s a script, not a novel, and it’s pages, not words, the main difference is that you’re allowed to write with a partner! For the…

Lord Of The Dance, Live At The 02

Lord Of The Dance, Live At The 02

On Wednesday 3rd November I went to see Lord of the Dance, which was showing at the 02 Arena in London (among other places). For those of you that don’t know, this was a special return-of-Michael-Flatley sort of show, so there was quite a lot of hype about it. Personally, I find Michael Flatley rather annoying, but it can’t be denied that his feet are … well, incredibly fast, that’s all I’m going to say. I was excited because I…
