Didn’t I say something about making this blog a daily thing? Yeaaaaaah,…..
A lot is happening at the moment so there’s a lot to say.
First up, I’ve been contracted to be the official Bentham Storyteller at the “Bentham Carnival” for the second year in a row! I had tremendous fun at the last Carnival (read about it here) and am expecting to enjoy this year’s just as much!
The title for the storytelling is “Rain or Shine – Umbrella Tales”. I’ll be performing 4 stories through the day. Just like last year, I’ll be writing them in advance. Come along to High Bentham on Saturday the 4th of June and enjoy!
There’s a good chance that I’ll be returning to my role as DCI Clueless in “Clueless and Wuffles: The Case of the Missing Jewels” a little later in the year. Situation still developing on that. News soon. If you recall, that’s the show that I took to Glastonbury Festival in 2014 with Rough Magic Theatre. It’s about time the ol’ trenchcoat was dusted off again!
ANOTHER thing I can’t talk about is Beowulf – a show that’s currently undergoing very early funding talks. I hope to be able to tell you a bit more about this once things are firmed up. Again; more soon.
So what CAN I tell you about? Well, I can tell you all about One Word One Story: a short story marathon of quite ridiculous insanity.
I recently challenged myself to write a brand new 100 word short story every single day for an entire year. Yes, really. And I’m doing it – you can go and read them right now over at https://onewordonestoryblog.wordpress.com/. It’s already got more than 700 views and it’s less than a month old. It has also garnered a few celebrity fans, including Red Dwarf’s Danny John-Jules.
There will be more to say and talk about next time!
Until then, stay frosty!
