To The Lamb yesterday (lovely little pub, great selection of beers) for the first of the year’s workshops, organised by the fabulous Kathryn Maris. It felt good to be reading people’s work again, arguing the toss over the use of “the” vs. the use of “a”, near- vs. full-rhyme…all those nit-picky things that poets get into.
I stomped purposefully back to the tube afterwards, through wet streets and sleet-trying-to-be-snow (it’s definitely 1 or 2 degrees warmer in Central London than the ‘burbs). I felt invigorated! Let the new year newly begin!
Next weekend I’m sketching with some friends around the British Museum – a new thing to try for me. I’m really looking forward to it.
