Seer of ghosts & weaver of stories

(You are very much not forgotten)

'Net access has been a lot more spotty than I'd thought it would be.
Last night's Underword reading, which was hosted by the talented and welcoming skullculture, was wonderful. There were seven of us on the line-up, five dynamic and entertaining gents hemmed in by two introspective and delightfully unnerving ladies (Claire Askew and myself). The locals here are so talented that I almost wish I could stay!

York has a quirky, close writing community, but I've noticed this year, since being invited to read in a few other places, that it's somewhat lacking in diversity. This isn't something that can't be remedied, though! Speakers' Corner at the Yorkshire Terrier brings in guest readers on a monthly basis, and I don't doubt that my making noises about the Flipped Eye crowd will result in an injection of some fresh blood. That's my hope!

Tonight is the Hamlet production, which apparently runs only an hour and fifteen minutes. Color me intrigued! It'll be interesting to see what they cut (and potentially disappointing, but I don't want to think about that). The reviews are positive.

I'm about to write up the post now. It's frustrating; I only have 'net access once a day for about three hours from this bar next to the venue. Blah.

I can't wait to hear your review of this Hamlet...!

I'd be happy to bring Writers' Bloc to do a date in York if we could work out the details. We've been planning a Newcastle gig for ages &hellip

And I would be very happy to see them there! I'll have a word with the organizer of Speakers' Corner. Rota-setting happens well in advance, so perhaps we'll see you sometime in 2010 :)

I'm glad the reading went well!

Hamlet definitely sounds interesting! Enjoy!!

Writing the review as we speak :)
