Updates

It's been a while since my last blog post, so I thought I'd write a quick update to let everyone know what I've been up to!

I'm still working full time, and still volunteering at the Finborough Theatre, where I am also working as Literary Assistant. I am planning on beginning my research in mid-August which will allow me time to investigate several different productions (more on this in my next blog!)

At the 30th Birthday celebrations for Dancia 

Through the Finborough I have been able to gain experience of different areas of working on a production: a couple of months ago I was Press Assistant for a new play, and I am currently Assistant Producer for a show that is having its European premiere at the end of August.

I blogged a couple of months ago about the charity I support, MySmallHelp, and thanks to some lovely people who donated, I was able to send two aid parcels out to their earthquake relief fund. 

In my spare time I'm working on a story that I've had in my head for over a year (I don't want to say 'book' or 'novel' as I think that sounds a little ambitious at the moment!) I'm really excited about it as it's based on my experiences as a performer, with obvious dramatic license taken!

I've also got a few more projects that I'm trying to get off the ground for next year, fingers crossed though, as these are only in the very beginning of the planning stages!

And speaking of planning, I've been reading more and planning for the research I'm going to do as part of Module 3: I've read quite a few books and articles relating to the subject of my investigation and I can't wait to get started!

  1. That all sounds very exciting! It's good to hear what other people on the course have been up to. It has been a while since I last blogged too, I am looking forward to getting back into it. Have you been able to access the module 3 hand book and readers? I am having trouble finding them but I would love to get going as time is going to be tight for me once the module starts! x

    1. I've not found them yet either, and from my schedule I came up with in Module 2 I want to start the research portion (interviews and suchlike) this weekend! Eek!
      I'm trying to get my head back into academic mode and since the weather has been more like autumn than summer, it's actually helping :P

  2. Yeah, me too! It's all come around so fast! I was hoping to start my interviews soon but I was hoping to check the module 3 structure, hopefully soon. I'm in Asia so the weather hasn't done much for me but time seems to be flying, I feel like i'm already running out of time to get everything done that needs to be for my inquiry!
