Questions are flying around my head. Why would anyone go? What if they don't like what I am saying? What if I'm boring and a million other questions. But I'm just putting myself down - as I always do - and I know I can talk engagingly for an hour. People are always interested in how I turned my life around and how I went from absolute zero to a little bit! lol!
My main concern should be something far more practical... I have to get onto a stage and my mobility (on a good day) would allow that. Today, however, is not a good day. Yesterday my left leg was swollen due to water retention to well over double its normal size and today it has gone down to regular proportions but is largely numb! Oh dear...
I checked my page hit numbers today and the values for 'The Fallen' were very gratifying. For what amounts to basically a prologue told in three Flash webisodes it has already found something of a readership. The next few parts are written, tweaked, and ready to go. See you on Sunday!
On 10th May, I will be giving a talk at Newcastle Central Library around the theme of 'Inspiration and eBooks' It should be a fun night with advice on how to break into the published world and some anecdotes on how I came to write about what I do!
