Guinea Pig Snow Birthday Party Present Opening


Hi everyone

Snow had her 2nd Birthday on October 15th, and I took a video of her birthday party present opening. I think her YouTube debut is fantastic and she is such a natural performer. Check out her performance and tell me what you think.

Snow is still being looked after by my mum, because she continues to be on antibiotics from her mouth operation. She had a set back. Last weekend she stopped eating. The vet said it seemed to be a tooth problem, so she had two injections and an increase in her antibiotics. She also has a wart, and a small hard lump from where the tube went into her cheek. Thankfully she is eating well again, and the lump and wart are not to be worried about.

I just finished working 10 days in a row. On my two days off from my day job this week, I had my staff induction for the Devon NHS Partnership Trust. It went well, and I will continue to teach for them, on an employed, rather than a self-employed basis. I will still be doing all of the other self-employed business stuff that I do. For those of you who don’t know, the NHS Partnership Trust, provides services to those with mental health difficulties, and disabilities.

Tell me what you think of Snow’s Debut?

How the Digital Revolution Exhibition can Inspire You to write


Hi everyone

If you read my last post, you will know that while I was in London last month, for the Success 2014 Seminar, I went to the Digital Revolution Exhibition.

I have more amazing videos to share with you.

Sometimes you may wonder how my activities relate to writing. Almost everything I do, I can connect to writing in some way. Some directly and others indirectly. I also feel it’s important for any reader to be able to understand what makes a particular writer tick, in order to better understand their writing and their nature.

From my own experience, this is how the Digital Revolution Exhibition, can help inspire you to write.

● Unlimited writing prompts

A good example of this, was seeing the original Altair and Mac designs. These can inspire you to write a drama set in the period they were produced. Alternatively, what’s the story behind those specifically. Why did someone buy each of them? What work is saved on them and why?

● The feeling of magic

The music, the atmosphere, things moving by sensor, touchscreen, special effects, create a feeling of magic. Can inspire you to create fairytales.

●Taking a behind the scenes look at films; Inception, Gravity and How to train your dragon 2.

Helps you to understand how a script can be brought to life.

●Fantasy becoming reality

Seeing things move by themselves and come to life. Such as a lamp like the one in the Pixar shorts, can get your creative juices flowing.

● Not believing your own eyes

Seeing yourself on screen; one minute with smoke coming from your face, the next stage, seeing yourself with wings and birds eating your body. Conjures up stories of illusion and fantasy.

● Future technologies

There is a solar powered dress on display which lights up. Couple that with the information that clothes in our future will be used to charge our mobile phone, makes you think up future Sci-fi adventures.

The Digital Revolution Exhibition, is at the Barbican in London until 14th September 2014.

If you have been wondering why I haven’t been blogging on here quite as much lately, I am currently working on my new design www.beatredundancyblues.com site. As my web host no longer services the site builder I used to build the site on, I have to create a new site using WordPress.org. This has to be done before I finish the final formatting of my Break through the barriers of redundancy book, because I cannot update the site and it is advertised on the front cover of my book. Thankfully, I love designing and creating. To create a new one is hard work and very time consuming, but pleasurable at the same time.

Write as soon as possible

Digital Revolution Exhibition – A sneaky peak behind the scenes


Hi everyone

Last month I went to the Success 2014 Seminar in London. Whilst I was in London, I went to the Barbican to see the Digital Revolution Exhibition. It blew my mind and you are going to be blown away too.

I have something special for you; in the next posts that follow, you will get to take a look behind the scenes, at the breathtaking special effects of today’s technology and sample some old classics. I have been watching some of the video footage and it feels like I am back there, immersed in the wonder and pleasure of fantasy meets reality. If you love magic and fairytales, and dreams coming true, you won’t want to miss these videos.

Take a sneaky peak now, with these two incredibly short introduction videos:

For those of you who prefer photos; here are some for you.

The Digital Revolution Exhibition is on until the 14th of September 2014.

Do not miss the videos.


 

I don’t like to be the bearer of bad news, but on a heavier note; I have had to remove the video and post about my interviewing Author Hinton Sheryn, because he has been convicted of pedophilia. You can read about it here if you wish to: http://www.plymouthherald.co.uk/Boy-struck-Plymouth-paedophile-piece-wood/story-21309308-detail/story.html

My apologies to anyone I may have offended by posting the video. At the time of interviewing and posting, I did not know about any of his indecent behaviour, and I do not condone it.

Write soon
