As an add on to yesterdays posting on the blog, I also had good news from another writer of mine. She sent through another four pieces for Getting A Backbone.
The writer for this piece has told me that when she tells me about things that happen, she just knows that my first words are ‘write it down, that will make a good story’.
I’ll soon know if I am pestering too much, when people don’t answer the phone or ignore my messages. But until then, hey if it makes me laugh I’m sure it will do the same for others. Unless I have a really warped sense of humour, but I don’t think so!
My friend who is doing the diet made me laugh out loud with an anecdote from her recent holidays. It shouldn’t really have been a laughing matter, but because it can happen to anyone, is what makes it so appealing.
Maybe this excercise will make me more observant of conversations and how people interact. It’s probably the same way that comedians collect their information.
Ooh, ooh, ooh, I’ve just thought. Maybe I could buy some James Bond type equipment to record my observations, but then again it could look a bit strange if I start talking to my handbag.
Although on the plus side, if I want a quiet day, people will avoid me!
