This is an attempt at a fast blog, haha. I can be pithy when I want. Poetry and film demand that especially. Tight precision I mean.

So right now I am fighting as per, and feeling like Drowning not Waving (see Stevie Smith poem) but we have to pootle on, don't we? I fear there'll be more Prozac soon, but sometimes it helps. I'm all over the place and it gets messy, so we'll see.

A performance next Weds, more on that soon. I'm booked for a featured slot, hurray!

I am working on the film for a competition but scheduling is tough when I can't think straight.

I desperately need a male actor, who can at least pass as non-disabled (it's needed for the context of the piece).

You'd play Dr Nazy, a right wing horror of a GP. It's short and it's dark comedy. Come on, get in touch. Reasonable travel expenses paid and you get a DVD. Also to appear alongside Sophie Partridge who is a FAB actor.

Ok back to work and battle. I think I'd look good in armour, don't you?
