It's coming to the end of 2010 and I'm excited. This year I started to make a success of writing for a living. I helped put together a national exhibition. I started to write my first book. And I laid foundations for 2011, when:
...once again I'll help turn 26 Treasures into an exhibition of words. But this time around Britain, not just in London.
...I'll help 26 to put on an exhibition of words and design at the Eden Project in Cornwall, to celebrate local food and drink.
...someone will give me a shipping container and I'll get a team together to transform it into an interactive wordy place, to celebrate creativity (especially writing) in the South West.
...I'll develop two scripts. One a comedy about a young man whose life changes dramatically in a night (in an accident). The other about a young lady with an extraordinary gift. This second one I'm co-writing. It's the first time I've co-written a script. I'm very excited.
...I'll visit Hazelbury Junior School and give a week of writing workshops to some of the children.
...later in the year I'll start a journey that's been a couple of years in the making. I hinted at it at the end of Moonwalking (here). And soon - with a lot of support and a pioneer's spirit - I'll set off for the Continent on a quest to answer the question that sparked the idea to begin with. In a couple of months, I'll share that question.
And I'll invite you to get involved in my 2011/12 European travel adventure.
See you next year...
