How to Not Write

Posted on 30/08/2015 by  GingerTom  ( x Hide posts by GingerTom )

Whether you've got a deadline to meet or not, the act of sitting down and writing every day isn't the easiest of routines to stick to. And while the reasons we come up with for not working on that novel/play/story/poem are pretty much limitless, there are a few that always seem like a good excuse:

How to Make Time to Write Every Day

Posted on 28/08/2015 by  GingerTom  ( x Hide posts by GingerTom )

As all writers know, one of the major things you have to do to succeed as a Writer is to write. All the time. Every day. But as many of us (in the real world) also have 'proper' jobs that we sort of have to do in order to stay alive, making time to write every day isn't always easy.

So here's a few ideas that might help:

Use your imagination

Posted on 21/08/2015 by  SueL  ( x Hide posts by SueL )

When I first came across this book, browsing in the National Portrait Gallery shop, I loved the idea behind it.

Take fourteen of the gallery’s 16th and 17th century portraits, and ask eight renowned authors to write about the individuals portrayed. Afterall, the portrait (in literary terms) is a written description or analysis of something or someone.

What makes this project more intriguing, and gives a free reign to the authors, is that these paintings - acquired for the collection between 1858 and 1971 as identified people - have since all proved not to be portraits of those named individuals.

Interestingly, the face on the cover of the book - given originally as Mary, Queen of Scots is still being used with that attribution - see a recent article in History Extra on the 9 worst monarchs in history.

As the art historian Tarnya Cooper points out in her essay in the book ‘Did my hero look like that? Identifying sitters in historic British portraits’:
Once a picture loses its link with a family collection or an identifying label, the stitching of those details back together proves virtually impossible.

So each of these sitters in the portraits are now unknown, mystery people.

Perhaps the portrait is the only document which remains of a past life.

All we are left with is the picture within the frame.

An individual presenting a pose, their face and expression, what the sitter is wearing, which in these examples are the fashion of the 16th and 17th centuries.

On Being an (Unpublished) Writer

Right now, I am in writers’ limbo, a land where I must seek and wait. So far I can report that I have received some very nice comments from agents, but as yet no offers of representation. I know the drill: don’t take anything to heart;

compulsary abortion for Down Syndrome babies [Jeffery Clarke MP]

Posted on 15/04/2015 by  Chrissy31  ( x Hide posts by Chrissy31 )

Mothers with foetuses detected to have Down's Syndrome and other Disabilities should be forced into a compulsory abortion according to Geffrey Clark.

Speaking as a Mother and one that has a Child with Disabilities I was absolutely disgusted to read this article on Facebook the other day, for one thing this is discrimination and secondly, surely it is down to the individual carrying the child as to whether it is an appropriate for them. Abortion isn't something that should be taken lightly under any circumstances. Children with special needs deserve to have the same chances at life as everyone else.

If you have a child with Downs Syndrome or a disability - maybe you suffer from a disability yourself, let me know your views on what Jeffery Clark has said

Walk-Tall Repertory Company - Perfomance Review

Walk-Tall Repertory Company – Performance Review
A La Carte -Directed By Robbie Humphries.
Review by Christine Hands, Freelance Journalist

Wow! What a Spectacular performance, and one of outstanding quality delivered to a packed audience on Saturday 11th April at The Refinery Theatre in Northfleet. Walk-Tall Repertory Company performs a wide range of performance genre from Murder Mystery to new and experimental Dramas. A La Carte was certainly an evening of entertainment well spent, serving up a delicious menu of sketches averaging between 5 to 10 minutes in length. And ranging from the funny to more deep and meaningful pieces, leaving you crying with laughter or experiencing the emotions felt by the Actor/Actresses performing them. The menu was split into three, the starters, the main course and finally the dessert each offering sketches as well as songs that were sung beautifully by very talented up and coming stars of the future. The evening had been well rehearsed and excellently pieced together by Walk-Tall’s Artistic Director Robbie Humphries. Although Walk-Tall is a registered Charity that offers support to vulnerable children young People and adults, they have a professional arm that trains professional actors as part of a repertory theatre company. Their performances are just as impacting as those done by RADA or LAMDA, and of equal quality to shows put on in some of the Top West End Theatres. For an exceptional evening of entertainment served up to tantalise your taste-buds I’d say Walk-Tall is the Place to go. Walk-Tall’s next performance will be on the 25th April at Gravesend Old Town Hall for more Information please contact 0845 270 8130 or go to www.walktall.org.uk
