Storytelling, the most natural way of communicating. A man (or woman) walks into a bar...buys a drink, takes a sip and... tells a story, humourous, serious, tragic, heroic. We all do it all the time, and yet, the moment it gets a name. I'm going to write a novel, a book, it starts getting complicated. It doesn't have to be. Check out Nanowrimo, http://www.nanowrimo.org/  National Novel Writing Month. That's where I found No Plot No Problem a book with a definite can do angle. Go for it, have fun, grab a few ideas, lots of coffee, tea or whatever, and if meticulous planning is your thing then good luck, I wish you well, it isn't mine. I like the unplanned journey of letting my characters tell their story through me.
Just do it, take a journey through your imagination, pack your supplies, boot up your desktop or click on your net book, initiate your Ipad. Look inside you for the pen wielding warrior and unleash your creativity. Take the leap, jump from the one day I'm going to and let today be the day.
Bon Voyage!

Situation update.

Found attached to the scaffolding of the SNAFU pub on High Street in Rotherham. An oddly reassuring sign. It went up while the building was been renovated. Renovation now completed so the sign has gone.

New stuff on the way

Head scratching and keyboard pounding on my website at cheekyseagull.co.uk. Sorting things out for publishing on the web - pages still tucked away offline, not ready yet.  Tasters for two novels in final stages of preparation for publishing. Have been researching options for self-publishing on a budget, including ebooks and print on demand. Aiming for sometime during the summer to get them out, stay tuned and I'll keep you posted.

Bo Bruce on The Voice tonight with Love the way you lie. Love the way you sing. Ethereal, elfin vocal quality,  amazing. Thrilled by the cover of Kate Bush song Running up that hill last time. Good luck Lady.

Dropped off the phone

New toy, checking the system. Does it do what it says on the box. Tap it on the phone and bung it on the post. Nicely done

One small step

No giant leap, tripped up dusted down and going for it, somewhere to mumble a shout! Hello World, first scribbles on a blank page.... to be continued...
Day one ....post one. A post it without sticky on the back.
