137 days to go: One skirt, three ways, Day three - Awayday
Apologies for the quality of this photograph but it was taken at 6am.
It was the Writers In Residence conference and required a four hour journey each way.
I spent the journey there writing which was good and the conference was great for catching up with the other mad people who do the same job!
There are just 20 of us in the UK doing this job and less than 100 across the whole world so the conferences provide a rare opportunity to share ideas and pass on good practice.
On the way back I sat with Clive, the director of the Writers In Prison Network, who is a writer, actor and film director. He was sharing great anecdotes about the work he has done over many years.
At 9pm as I sat on the final train home, safe in the knowledge that my workshop the following morning was taken care of with an actor/writer visit I got a phone call.
"Jane, it's Neil. I'm sorry but I've lost my voice and I won't be able to come tomorrow."
Panic - After a 15 hour day I now had to devise a three hour writing workshop for less than 12 hours time!
Today is the final day of my three day challenge which ends next weekend when I will be doing a blog round-up. Thanks to everyone who took part.
