Good news and Bad news

When someone tells me there is good news and bad news, I always ask for the bad news first; you know, to get it out of the way so that the good news comes as a reward. But I've invariably found that the bad news is usually dependent on the good news: like the good news is that you've won a million pounds - the bad news is that you've lost the ticket...

Anyway, the good news is that I've been asked to facilitate a group of writers across the autumn with an eight week session of writing workshops. Sounds good, eh? Doing a job that I really want to do - teaching writing. Even the very sound of it - well, goodness me!

The bad news is that we'll have to wait and see how many people will respond to the advertisement in the local paper!?! I really hope lots of people see it and want to give it a go.

Fingers, toes, arms, legs and everything else crossed :S

Round 'em up from your local high street and don't take no for an answer!

Hope it goes wel, I'm sure it will. Congrats on the book being a further stage on too! I hope the launch goes well, not long now. I'll look out for the purchase info.

You could offer nibbles.


Stop panicking, everything is exactly as it should be......

Carole said...

I don't know how you fit it all in. good luck!

Cailleach said...

Sound advice Minx. I'll save the panicking for a few weeks down the line.

To be truthful Carole - I don't know either!

Emerging Writer said...

Put up a notice in the local libraries too. Don't rely on emerging writers to read the local rag! Good luck

Cailleach said...

Good thinking EW - will do that as well. Probably should cover the bases on local radio too! now you've got me thinking :)
