Here is a list of reasons why I didn’t blog last week:
Easter chocolate hangover
Practising Road Safety presentation for Commonwealth Games drivers
Having meetings re Commonwealth Games presentation
Sending a million emails re Commonwealth Games presentation
Shopping for new clothes in order to look amazing when giving presentation
Doing next Creative Writing course assignment
Panicking about said assignment
Doing more of assignment
Finishing first draft of assignment
Trying to stop Frodo cat pooping in plant pots
Anything else I can think of
So, as you can see, I’m still busy, dizzy and fizzy! Very much enjoying it all, though.
I would say normal service will resume soon, but I have no idea what normal service is. 😉
Anyhoo…my assignment is due in a week’s time. The Commonwealth Games stuff starts for real a couple of days after. Then I’m going on a short break with long-suffering hubby (who really has been suffering, as he’s been my presentation guinea pig). I think we’re going to York, but it’s not quite decided yet…
After that, my final assignment is due at the end of May. Phew!
THEN…I shall quietly pass out in a corner.
‘You never do anything quietly!’ – Long-suffering hubby
Thank you, darling.
Okay, then I shall not-very-quietly be working on more material for this blog, including short fiction. I’ve loved my course and it’s taught me a lot, but it’ll be great to get back to writing more of the genres I like, and not having to worry quite so much about word count. I’m dying to do a big tidy up of this site, and I’ve got some bits and pieces to add to it. I’ll also be featuring some Vampire stories on Mari Wells‘s blog in the summer, if all goes as planned.
However, at the moment my mind is mostly being boggled by the size of the transport operation for the Commonwealth Games. (The Olympics would have been even bigger – ye Gods!) I and my colleagues have 2000 volunteer drivers to train during the month of May. Advanced driving techniques, radio and satnav use, Games routes, protocol when dealing with VIPs and other passengers…the list goes on. Hats off to all who volunteer for such work.
I shall Keep Calm and Carry On – or as us Scots say:
