How on earth did that happen? A whole month since my last post? Shame on me! I will not do anything so mundane as to trot out a list of excuses other than the fact I was away for a week, my modem went down, the mobile keeps conking out, this flying saucer turned up in the middle of the night and took me to Mars ... I am way above such banal actions!!!!! But hey. I am here, now, right?
Finished the sessions with Michael - at least for the time being. Our last session was three weeks ago. His mum sent me a text last night to say he had been diligently working on a story for three hours solid and wants to know if I will read it. How dedicated is this young writer? I will get back to her shortly in the affirmative.
Sadly, even though the Young Writers were due to start their sessions again a week or so ago, we suddenly found ourselves minus a venue when the coffee shop we usually meet at closed sown unexpectedly. So now I am looking for a new venue. I approached the local library yesterday and might be in with a chance there so fingers crossed. Failing that, I may have to think the whole thing through again. It is a shame though. The proprietor of that coffee shop was the first person to show an interest in the idea of a Writing group for youngsters. She put so much into that place; it is such a shame it did not work out for her. I hope she is able to pick up the pieces and soldier on somehow. She deserves that chance.
Gotta go - someone coming in shortly to discuss installing solar panels and I have to hop in the shower. Be back later with some good news though!!!!!
