I have been asked to appear at Cheltenham Literary Festival.*
I have said yes.
I am not sure which of those two statements is scarier....

* for my children's books, not the Lucy Diamond stuff. Eeek.


Caroline said...

Very exciting!

Now - how was the Hen Night? :)


girl with the mask said...

Public speaking? Eeek!

That's so cool!

JJ said...

Wow, how amazing (yes, okay, and a little bit terrifying but I bet you can do it.)

And hen night? We haven't forgotten, you know.

Lucy Diamond said...

Caroline - I am quite excited actually, especially as there's going to be an arts and crafts workshop (which I don't have to do) as part of the event. Hen night... ahh, I'm getting to that...!

Girl - I used to think 'Eek!' but now I actually quite like such stuff. It's the inner show-off's time to strut her stuff on a stage!

Won'tletlife - cheers!

JJ - I know! Cheltenham is one of the biggies. I hope I've recovered from the hen night by October, I still feel quite knackered from it to be honest!

Calistro said...

Is the Cheltenham Literary Festival the same as the Cheltenham Festival?

In which case I once won a cup for acting there. I was 14 and it was one of the happiest moments of my life *basks in the memory*

Oh sorry - back to you. That's excellent news. I'm sure you'll be brilliant.

Ooooh, how exciting!!

But more pressingly, to reiterate wot Caroline said, how was the hen night, eh?? ;-)

Lane said...

Oooh - exciting stuff:-)

I don't know the name you use for your children's books and I know I should!

Hope it goes well! :-D

Lucy Diamond said...

Calistro - ooh, go you! I think there are quite a few festivals in Chelters - this is the books one, dahling!

Kate - the hen night was fab...am really excited about the wedding now!

Lane - I am a woman of many names, you know... Lucy Diamond is only one of my many aliases!

Michelle - cheers!
