been busy scribbling away and have managed to write a new novel as well as some
short fiction. I am hopeful these stories will all see the light of day once
they find literary homes among the industry's agents, publishers and editors.
More news on those when they are more widely available. For now, I'd just say
I had great fun writing them, and a big thanks to the writer friends of mine
who have helped me with them!
I have been reading:
Madman of Freedom Square by Hassan Blasim, The Dam by David Constantine, The
Memory of Love by Aminatta Forna. I've also been reading a French joke book.
Nothing more difficult to 'get' than a joke told in a language that is not your
first language. It's a great way of brushing up second language skills though.
intend to get back to posting stuff up on the blog, perhaps short poems/texts
etc accompanied by a photo or two. The link to it is here http://blog.peterkalu.co.uk/
So far the blog has covered musings on subjects as diverse as car parks and
fashion shows (as well as becoming a 'wall' for a story -The Both Baby- me and
my daughter have been doing together). The blog gets updated sporadically. You
can comment on the blog (it is a Wordpress platform) though you have to leave
an email address (to stop spammers).
'The Bay', got an outing at the three minute theatre recently. That great actor,
Ali Gadema also incorporated an IPad into the performance, a very clever way
of being able to revisit the script. Thanks to poet, Jackie Hagan for stepping
in to play a very disorientating part at short notice.
