FOOTNOTES: To Eastbourne last Tuesday to perform at the Anderida Writers Group. Having entered the short story competition myself, I was somewhat startled to find that not only had I won first prize for the second year running, but this time the third prize as well. Home to a celebration and to restore the silver cup to its former place on the dresser. I have spent most of the week like the rest of us, playing hide and seek with the sun. There I am carefully placing my chair on the lawn under a blazing sun, cup of tea on the table beside it, book and/or film script ready, I sink into the chair. Five minutes later the sky has clouded over, the wind is whistling through the trees, and the temperature has dropped dramatically and I am shivering in my shirt and shorts. Reverse of all the actions above and I sink into my armchair beside the desk. Ten minutes later I raise my head and see the sun beaming down on the garden. You just cannot win. I give up and the phone rings. It is my agent yet again dropping broad hints about my autobiography. I have worked in my profession continuously for 67 years and still I keep going off on a tangent whenever I start to write about all those years. Part of the problem is that I am so engrossed in what is going on and what I am working on currently, that I have no real desire to re-visit all those years again. I put the phone down and mentally promise myself to work on it this time. Well, some time. Have a good week and go safely wherever your destiny takes you.
