Here in Sydney, the school system is in break mode before the final term of the year. My family stayed in Sydney with my mother while I traveled to and fro for work. Last Saturday night was a highlight – Goon Show with our largest audience yet and the most fun we had performing too. I polished off a fairly unpolished German accent but still got lovely laughs. Most exhausted. My wife and editor read the first draft of Mother Goose and tells me I need more jokes to please the adults. I did my first pass at the second draft, added a joke about Gordon Ramsay and another nursery rhyme. The first reading is going to happen at the end of this month. Gives me time to give the script a bit of spit and polish.
I also discussed the possibility of writing classes hosted by my local neighbourhood centre. I’m waiting for approval before I say anything more about it. Finally this Friday night I am reading at a poetry book launch. Some intriguing poems.
Have a good day everyone.
