Down the YouTube Rabbit hole (or how I\'m holding on to some sanity)

Some days you churn out 1000s of words of post-apocalyptic fiction (because what else there) some days you end up down a Youtube rabbit hole. And that’s ok.  Unlike many of my older Millennials, I am a HUGE advocate of Youtubers. I think they’re super creative, interesting people…and also a total car crash. Basically theContinue reading “Down the YouTube Rabbit hole (or how I\'m holding on to some sanity)”

Turtles All The Way Down- John Green (Review)

Hey, so this blog is a book review blog too now I guess? A theatre reviewer with no theatre needs something to cast opinions on I guess.   But as part of the introspection of this madness I’ve come to realise my best work is not the formulaic by the numbers reviewing that probably getsContinue reading “Turtles All The Way Down- John Green (Review)”

Still Hurting (even though the pubs are open)

If your theatre friends seem a bit \’over-sensitive\’ right now it\’s because after a lifetime of our identities tied up with our job, and what we love…our world has disappeared. And nobody outside our bubble seems to care. Because there\’s football and pubs now. — Emily Garside (@EmiGarside) June 23, 2020 The only thing that’sContinue reading “Still Hurting (even though the pubs are open)”
