Did you do the RSPB Garden Bird Watch at the weekend? We ummed and ahhed about it but in the end decided it would just be too depressing. Probably quite high on the list of ways to put your child off nature is to make them stare out of the window counting the non-existent birds in their garden. That’s right – the sparrows haven’t been back (sad face).
My writing evening class with Janis MacKay continues. This week we talked about heroes and the concept of the ‘quest’. Janis is very well-read so it was fascinating hearing some of the theory around these sorts of stories. One of the things I am enjoying most about the class is the other people in the group. They’re all such interesting people and I love hearing their different voices as it comes across in their writing. We have opportunities to share what we have written within the class and people make a real effort to offer thoughtful and constructive feedback. There’s some really good writers there too.
Here is a logo I produced recently for a local tennis club.
