A handy read…

What I learnt from this was, writing sometimes doesn’t come naturally and I always said that if I wasn’t going to act I would teach. After reading these writing tips I’ve come to the conclusion that maybe that is what I could do through my writing. Recently I’ve been avoiding writing because I felt like I had nothing to write, I put it down to being busy, working all the time but I think I was avoiding writing because I thought I couldn’t get it wrong if I hadn’t written anything. Today, I begin fresh, for some reason, although I’m still working just as many hours I feel a bit more clear, my deadline is approaching, rapidly but now I’m not so panicked. If anyone feels stressed or overloaded, maybe you should read Ann Handley’s tips.

Sometimes you’re just in the right place at the right time…

There are two stories in this post, one that happen a few months and go and one that occurred last weekend.

1. I’m at work now, in the hotel, walking from the bar to the reception and I start talking to this guest, lovely woman there with her baby and a friend. We end up talking for a while and they ask a few questions about me, “so what do you do?” she asked. “Well, I’m in the middle of doing my masters in Scriptwriting but I’m actually and actress.” They looked at me. “That’s what we do, we’re performing in a show tonight at the New Theatre you should come.” “Yeah I’d love to, let me ask one of the girls if they want to come with me” I replied. So as I head down to the reception to ask said girl I see another colleague on the way. “Tiff, do you know who that is?” he asked, now I must be completely oblivious, but I didn’t have a clue. “That’s Claire Sweeney love.” SHUT UP. I didn’t have a clue. Later that evening we went to the performance of “Sex in Suburbia” it was hilarious and highly entertaining. I even went on stage with the ladies. What an experience!

2.
Now my partner owns his own business’, so the other day I’m sitting in said business as a young black man approaches my partner and asks him if he watches googlebox. Now, Lion as sweet as he is, yes my partners’ name is Lion, doesn’t watch much television, only the news, looks at him blankly. “I do” I said. This young guy comes over and introduces himself, “I’m actually recruiting for people to be in the next series which begins in September,” he says. I’m like a child in a sweet shop. So I’ve taken this guys details and have been contemplating it. Any opinions had I would love to hear them but if this isn’t the cosmic signs trying to throw something my way, I don’t know what is!
