    I saw ;The Woman in the Moon' by John Lily on the 18 August. I might try a lit crit of this, but the play is fading a bit from my memory. There is another side to the Globe Theatre. now. Who is John Lyly? I now know quite a lot about him.

    The reviewer has a point. Most modern ghost stories are light comedy and I have nothing against this. The comedy is often farce. I am using this in the play idea. I do find a lot of modern horror seem to be pastiche of older stories. I am not ...

    @ Yo - Agree fear is no reason to squish spiders (or anything) and I've never done so. When I was a kid my sister and mum assumed spider duties, which involved scooping the critters up and putting them outside. Never killing. I must have been in my ...

      Jenni Belsay There is a blog somewhere by Harry Bingham (who runs this site) and there have been been forum threads about this crowd before. Basically the advice is DO NOT TOUCH WITH A BARGEPOLE.

    The way my words flow when writing is vastly different, or so it seems to me, from when I am speaking, so I would be interested to see what difference it made, but I like typing. When I write by hand every word seems more weighted and full of ...

    My technique at the moment is to slosh great quantities of water nowhere near the thimble, then wonder why the thimble remains empty. Perhaps I have an inner belief that if I raise the water table sufficiently, the thimbles will fill ...

    I fear I may be rather wasteful when filling my thimble, including descending from the battlement and carefully emptying that which is within before ascending to pour afresh. A full emptying may not be the best policy, but it's my way. Generally ...

    "John Taylor" commented on Tpfm's Blog "The art of thimble filling...".
    My particular way of dealing with the thimble is to ignore it for a long time, then close my eyes and pour when it isn't looking. The rationale is that if the thimble thinks I'm ignoring it, it won't mind so much about all the splashes. I write ...

    Playwright, writer and raconteur Brendan Behan used voice recording for his later work, which according to his biographer hasten a demise in quality... he lost his discipline so to speak. The alcohol mightn't have helped either!

    Sekhempta; whoever that was it was worth £16m. It was more complex in that, if memory serves, there were stipulations that were over ridden. A pretty grubby business all in all.

    An entirely deserved outcome, I feel. What a shame. It's probably like Ipswich Town - no sooner do they get a decent player than a richer club swoops in and offers a sum the owners have no desire to turn down. The difference being that an ancient ...

    All true enough. But they sold this donated artefact for £16M and lost their accreditation over it.

    Yes, this is the problem. Once it's donated, the museum can do what it wants with it. My bugbear is with photos. Lots of servicepeople or their families donate photo albums to certain museums, and in some cases people with large collections of rare ...

    It was. They have several already in the back room. I'm keeping it. Northampton Borough rather famously sold off a donated ancient Egyptian artefact and used the money to pay for a museum refurbishment. I rather took the view that they had crossed ...

    True. I'm of the opinion that things should be protected where possible in case there is some meaning or knowledge that future generations can glean that we can't. Maybe a future archaeologist will see the repair to the 1800 year old sarcophagus and ...

    I am probably one of those people that can be accused of simultaneously holding diametrically opposed views. I'm sure there's a word for it. The damage to the ancient coffin or sarcophagus can't be undone and it is an irreplaceable artefact. But, ...

    Blog: Turning Point. The usual gamut of emotions your writing inspires. High five; lump in the throat; prickle behind the eyes; shock; surprise; satisfaction. You have a knack. Your stuff touches people.
