Silent Sunday

The low hum of my laptop, the odd bird tweeting outside, a train trundling past every 30 minutes or so, no-one to talk to, no-where to go, it's only 11.23 and I feel like I've been awake for 2 days! I'm on my second cup of coffee, I never, unless I'm going out, have two... Continue Reading →


Acting for Camera (Lesson 3)

Today was as fun as usual! Had to read our scripts, on camera, once was off camera just a normal script read and if you forgot your line just said line and whoever was holding the script said the first few words of the line. Then we did it on camera without it recording and... Continue Reading →

Watching. Waiting.

"Masquerade paper faces on parade, masquerade, hide your face so the world will never find you"* except I suspect the world has found me, and it's staring hard, judging all the movements, all the steps, all the words, everything.

Thankfully I'm feeling better today, much better actually, so I'm... Continue Reading →

I loved it, although I hate the sound of my normal voice, so annoying!! But according to the... Continue Reading →

I have found out there are at least two people from previous courses who are doing it so I'm not going... Continue Reading →

A Week Passed

Sorry for the delay since I last posted, I'd give you a wonderful excuse but, the truth is, I don't have one. I got carried away playing a game that has literally made days vanish! So that's a sort of excuse! Not a very good one though. I've got into a game called Kingdom's and... Continue Reading →


I've been watching the news all day about Hurricane Irma which has battered the Caribbean and now Florida. I had many variations of the poem I came up with but I decided on this one. I hope you like it and my thoughts are with all those effected by Irma. It started out as a... Continue Reading →
