New writing group, Genealogy, Video and Painting

How exciting! Julie Shaw and I are going to start up a new writing group in Ashwell! It will be about learning to write for youth, women and older people. We will be analysing how writers create there own style and how to put together your own novel or feature.

I'm also now thoroughly addicted to genealogy. In fact Colin and I are going to make a documentary about my mother's family tree. I'm going to start by going to the cemetery in Duffield, Derby where they are all buried and check out all the maiden names I can find. Then I'm going to go to Allestree and do the same for the Evans family. We may go this weekend to make a start on what could be a long exploration.

The Childrens Art Club is going well I now have two good groups one with mixed ages. I really do fancy starting another adult club, anyone interested? I'm going to do more of the watercolour paintings I started at the beginning of the summer. I can feel another exhibition coming on.

The Clairefest 2011 and The Kill Bill video is now edited and written. We now have to decide how much if anything people are willing to pay to buy them and how much we have to pay to produce them. Will there be any profit for Cancer Research I wonder. http://wendyerose.weebly.com/blog.html

Blogs blogs and more blogs!

So how many blogs have you got now?!

I seem to be establishing rather a lot for different reasons. Not a problem as I love to write and can usually find something to say...boring or otherwise! Firstly, I blog here because it is high up the blogging scale on Google. Wendabubble is unusual so google likes it.

Secondly, I blog here http://eashwell.wordpress.com/ because I focus my media ambition on the village where I live. Anything happens here in the positive then I blow a loud trumpet to some of the village that is electronically minded.

Thirdly, I now have my own personal website! YIPEEE! I'm seriously hoping it will find me some more work but who knows. http://wendyerose.weebly.com/blog.html It is of course terribly silly but it keeps you up to date with my silliness. 

Then there is my business blog, which is also a website. You can find it here http://hernibsinc.weebly.com/blog.html. Now I'm off to continue with some research because I really do need to write a novel.

So link your blogs below..lets do some blog busting!!

Clairefest 2011 and A Nile Adventure by Kim Molyneaux!

Sunday 11th September 2011

I'm having a grand day! Colin has finished editing and has written the Clairefest video to disc. It looks fantastic! It you're interested in getting a copy then you can make a request here http://www.clairestanleytrust.org/.

You can also make a donation here http://www.clairestanleytrust.org/donate.php.
We hope to make a DVD of Kill Bill @ Clairefest too so that we can raise more money for the cause!

Next up is Kim's Book A Nile Adventure - Cruising and other stories. I was lucky enough to go to Egypt on holiday this summer and while we were cruising down the River Nile I met Kim Molyneaux who was writing a journal about her experience. I'm well excited about it and I've had the pleasure of writing the Foreword for the book. You can read an excerpt and all about Kim's book and the experience she had http://www.nilecruise.me.uk/.

We're off to Balstock later as I believe there's a local band playing at the Hen and Chicken at 5.30pm! I wonder who that could be......!
