My ArtsFestFirst:Wait there.. how much??
So I’m going through to organise my shortlist of events to attend for the coming weekend and suddenly it dawned on me.. Did I just declare online that I would write a piece per sitting..
Well sixteen ain’t all that bad… Right?!
Don’t get me wrong, I am confident I can do this because I love to write. But I am somewhat newborn to the world of blogging and my finishing pieces has lacked in public deadline and therefore, finishing does not always come to pass.. And I have had to stop myself in this medium from rambling on (I know I do a bit, but bare with me), so I’m anticipating turbulance for my ArtsFestFirst.
Oh! Em! Gee! That’s wot I’m gonna call the series, My ArtsFestFirst. (Instantly adds to title layout).
Anyways I need to explain my agenda for the weekend, if only to get my plan of action straight in my head.
