INTERVIEWS, REVIEWS AND WRITING

C-Day approaches. 6 days to go. What joy! C-Day is the day my littlest child goes into a créche for 3 mornings a week so that I can WRITE. I can't wait. I cannot WAIT! Did I mention I'm looking forward to it?!

I feel all light and airy today because I am making great headway with my editing for Horizon Review. Still have those poetry books to review though for another publication (books by Paul Perry and Grace Wells) but I've been given a month-long extension by the editor until I get on top of things.

All this blazing about doing radio interviews about the novel is very time consuming. I've another one this avo, for BBC Ulster's Arts Extra. It'll be broadcast tonight at 6.30pm and can be listened to online.

You’re beaming with positivity, its brilliant to read. And the start of the school year for C-Day is great!

I hope the interview went well today and I look forward to tuning in this evening.

Listening now. Excellent. It's just finished. That was very good. I love the feeling of Irish radio and television programs, a certain warmth.

Thanks for listening, Oss.
Marie-Louise was very warm and even though I was in Athlone and she in Belfast, it felt like a chat.

Pooey - I can't listen to it - "not available in my area"!! Not much BBC is, it seems!

Well, it sounds - from everyone else - like it was a brill interview. So very well done with it!

Now, if you could just do an interview with NZ radio? You'll have to ignore the sexist ads though!
