RSC Hamlet – David Tennant

Got my Ticket for The Royal Shakespeare Company’s performance of Hamlet. My daughter is a big Hamlet fan and a big fan of David Tennant, so she thinks all her birthdays have come at once. The performance is not until October but it will be worth the wait. I have not seen the RSC before, or been to the The Courtyard Theatre, Stratford-upon-Avon, so it should be a blast. Actually I got the tickets last November, an early Christmas present if you like. I am only posting this now as I have just got to grips with my web cam, and can’t think of anything else to do with it. So this is me showing off!

10 Steps to becoming a better writer

I have just read Stephen King‘s On Writing which is a pared down version of a how to write fiction with an element of biography thrown in for good measure. I highly recommend it, it’s like a creative writing course with the bullshit thrown out. I’m not usually a fan of King’s writing. However, he is a master story teller and has the chinks to prove it.

To Pare down the craft of writing even more take a look at the Brian Clark video.
