Last night I celebrated Christmas with my friends from my improvised comedy group. It’s been a couple of months since I saw most of them. It’s weird how quickly that time has gone.
It was so nice to be surrounded by the kind of people who have some drive to them. They always seem to be full of exciting plans and its a beautiful thing to behold. The latest is the possibility of turning one of my short stories into a short film. I spent last weekend writing up the screenplay (on TextEdit of all things) and they’re excited to get me involved in filming.
Oh, I just have to give a quick shout out to Jocasta for her copy of Office. You’ve given me a new nib you beautiful bastard.
Everyone was excited for news of the book and my other witterings.
I spent a lot of time talking to Sam, who is a singer songwriter. He’s trying to organise a music night and wants me to get involved which is always nice. There were talks of it being held in a church but he’s not found anywhere willing to let us in. I really like the idea of playing gigs where they aren’t supposed to be played, or in places a little unusual. I was just about to say I would like to play a gig under a bridge but then realised I was describing busking.
The important thing to take away from last night is to keep going, and you can do anything you set your mind to. People get to their chosen spot quicker than others but if you want it you can get there eventually.
