A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Book Reading…

On Thursday last week, Dear Reader, I was booked to read one of my short stories at the Metal/Essex Writer’s House literary festival…

*I was so fucking nervous, Clicky… /lights up… I’d never done anything like that before…*

…Unfortunately, when I got there, the place was closed and my spot had been cancelled due to a leak in the ceiling…

*No, that was a leak in the sealing, Clicky… /drags… plus it ‘appened the day before…*

… But fortunately the open mic slot for Saturday had become available that morning, so I re-booked to return at the weekend…

*Good thing that creative writing class broke for food when they did… /smokes… It was nice to have an audience, Clicky. I hope I didn’t put them off their lunch…*

… Thank you for listening, Dear Reader, and have a Song…
