Pictured below are Marta and I at our THIRD outing IN A ROW to the Comedy Club at the Bottle Cap bar on Friday night.
The late great Maeve Binchy used to give advice to aspiring writers. As a form of discipline you should either tell everyone you are writing a book or tell no one you are writing it (and just do it). It's a bit like how I started this blog 7 years ago or so. I had been humming and hawing over doing it (aka procrastinating) then one night over a load of drinks, on a wonderful weekend away in Wexford with friends, I grandly pronounced at 2am I was starting a blog. So that was that, I couldn't handle people asking me about the blog so I just went and did it. And amn't I glad I did so now?!
For the record.
I am inching closer and closer to getting up and doing a 5 minute piece at the Locals/Amateur night on Wednesday nights. Just the once. To try it out and to be able to say I did it.
Watch this space.
