Having finished has given me a bit of scope to do a bit more performance spoken word. In January I read at Red Army Fiction's south london night. I read Skinless and Boneless which I'd written about 3 years ago. I usually like to read something new, but didn't finish what I'd been trying. I enjoyed reading S&B again - it is still a good story - but I feel already like my writing has moved on quite a bit.
Got another Red Army night tomorrow (20 February) in Bethnal Green. Again, I will probably read something I've already written - it is so unlikely there will be anyone in the audience who has read any of my stuff any it will sound like new. Let's see - I might surprise you.
Anyway if you want to come along it is at the Gallery Cafe in Bethnal Green.
I've also finished - and properly enjoyed - a novel for the first time in about 2 years. Since I've been focused on my own novel, Undertone, I've felt really unable to concentrate on other work - which has been a real pain. But on holiday last week I raced through all 950 pages of Murakami's 1Q84. And loved it. Great to be back!
