My book for World Book Night (Me Before You if you remember) is a very enjoyable read and luckily I'm now no longer an outgroup member! I'm one of the over 2000 who would have given it 5 stars. But more to the point I can face all those people in the street that I gave it to and feel good about myself. By the way the night itself was a tremendous success and I even got invited in to chat to people about books. I went slightly further afield than I have done in previous years, as I usually take books just round my village, and opened Greenlaw's eyes to the delights of World Book Night.
Next, at my poetry class yesterday afternoon my poem was very well received. I had some great critiquing and, on discussion, decided to cut two lines and add a comma or two. I was dreading this one, mainly because the tutor emailed me the night before to say he thought my poem was 'very discussable' which sounded decidedly ominous, but I needn't have worried, they loved it.
I've got just one day left before I head off on the annual retreat I lead on Holy Isle, off Arran, which finishes next Tuesday. Do you think it's possible to have a week full of lucky events? I think it is. I'll report back.
