Hello again, my lovely Lair-ies. I hope that you are all well and, if you are currently in a Covid lockdown, I hope you are not going too stir-crazy. (We went into Lockdown 2.0 a couple of weeks ago here in the UK 😥)
The week just past has been a very productive and positive one for me, despite not having any audiobook work for the first time in about a year. To make the most of the downturn, I decided to (finally) join Medium and, lo and behold, my writer’s block suddenly lifted with a vengeance.
To my amazement, and immense delight, two of my articles were picked up by a couple of publications;
My poem “Did We Have Sex This Morning?”, previously published here on the blog, was accepted for publication by Sex and Satire, and I have an article under consideration by another Medium publication.
I have written an article for a company, and have my fingers crossed that they will become a regular client, AND to cap off an amazing week, I had a fantastic live-chat with writer and podcaster Isoellen on her podcast Isoellen Writes: Stories for Adults! I was a little anxious beforehand, but Isoellen was such a wonderful host that I got over that immediately and had a great time. I even got to do a couple of readings! Isoellen will be putting up the replays of all of her recent live podcasts in the next few weeks, so you will have a chance to listen later. (I recommend subscribing to her podcast to take a listen to her older episodes, too. They’re very funny, and she’s done some fantastic interviews!)
So, there you have it. Though the audio-production door remained closed, the content writing door opened up for me again, and I have found myself really enjoying life and kind of awestruck and really chuffed at how well my work has been received this week.
I hope that you, likewise, had a fantastic week and a happy weekend, and send you hugs and kisses from a locked-down London.
Love, Jupiter 💋
