I'm back... Come on! You recognise me! It's only been just over a fortnight!!
This week I've got a new poem for you called, THE ANSWER'S NO... We'll return to that in a moment. I just thought I should update you with some of the things I've been up to and also mention that I'm about to go away - returning to Venice. As you will know, I wasn't too well last year during the summer months and since then I haven't really gotten back into the swing of things with my editing. My plan is to film some mini-episodes - or perhaps just single poems during my trip to Venice, which I will then prioritise editing so as to get me back into editing the longer projects. I'm hoping to get a better editing package soon anyway - the fact that I have to edit on a creaky old laptop hasn't really helped recently; not to mention various changes in technology.
I'll be reporting back from Venice, no doubt with photos, in a couple of weeks and hopefully will have something to post up shortly after that.
As well as this I'm hoping to complete the spoken word album that I began recording late in 2012 and am also aiming to draw a line under the next poetry book at the end of this month... I've been quite busy working on a number of final poems - some new ideas, not to mention some older ideas that I've returned to... I'm also proofing series 2 of BEAST OF FRIENDS and have written the first two scripts of series 3 - not to mention that I'm back to working on some Mouse Of Commons projects having had a year off Gladstone McWhiskers last year.
Before I go I just thought I'd remind you one last time about my most recently completed book.

Enjoy the new poem - more soon!
Then say my goodbyes to you!
